Japan

Japan has become the second largest healthcare market in the world and is among the five main trade partners for European pharmaceutical companies. However, its social setting is very different: there are linguistic and cultural complexities, and the business fabric is based on personal relationships. Being successful in this country requires investing a significant amount of time and resources. With Start.Smart.Japan, Biocat helps you accelerate this process.

The Program

  • The companies selected will be analyzed and get online and video guidance to establish their strategy needs for moving into the Japanese market.
  • Then they will attend a week-long training course in Munich to learn about business and cultural differences and polish their business strategy.
  • Companies will get a guided tour of various pharmacy and health clusters in Japan (Osaka, Yokohama, Tokyo), coinciding with BioJapan, to meet with landing and distribution specialists for the local market, potential clients and relevant authorities.
  • Two evaluations will be done after the visit to optimize market entry strategies

Participating companies that finish the whole program will receive a prize of €2,100 to cover travel expenses, which is on top of any other subsidies they may have. 

Go Global
