Partnering with Japan’s blue-chip companies: Reverse pitching series 4th session with MACNICA, Inc.


9th December, 2021


0900 - 1000 UK Time





Since January the UK-Japan Free Trade Agreement has been in place, opening even more opportunities for UK companies to forge partnerships and generate new business in the world’s third largest economy.

Marking this exciting new chapter in trading relations between the UK and Japan, the Department for International Trade (DIT) and Tech Nation, the growth platform for UK tech, are delighted to be running a Reverse Pitching Series where we are inviting innovative technology companies from the UK to hear from large Japanese blue-chip companies on their business challenges.

In each session of this series a renowned Japanese company is selected to reverse pitch to UK tech companies.

Reverse pitching with MACNICA

In this session MACNICA, Inc. will present the technical issues they are currently facing and where they are looking for solutions from UK tech companies. MACNICA are also keen to discover where they can join with UK innovative technology companies to explore the market in Japan and across the world leveraging their global network. Should UK companies identify solutions they can offer, there will be separate one to one meetings set up after this session. As this is organised in a business matching format, the discussion is expected to be focused and effective, and we hope that it is likely to lead to partnerships.
