Welcome to Disrupting Japan, straight talk from Japan’s most successful entrepreneurs.

I’m Tim Romero and thanks for joining me.

Twice a month, you and I will sit down meet the founders of some of Japan’s most innovate startups. We’ll talk a bit about their companies, of course, but most of the time we talk about how Japan is changing, what it’s like to try to sell to large companies as a small startup, new emerging Japanese technology, and a lot of the social and personal issues founders here face.

Disrupting Japan is really about what it’s like to be an innovator in a culture that prizes conformity.

And yeah, since most of my guests are speaking English as a second language, there is alcohol involved in more than a few of these interviews.

So if you are interested in Japan and in innovation, let me introduce you to some of the most amazing and creative people in the world.

Come join me in Disrupting Japan.
