Fukuoka Innovation Night in Boston, hosted by the Fukuoka Prefecture.

October 16, 2023 in Boston, MA

In October 2023, Incubate took part in the Fukuoka Prefecture Innovation Program in Boston, forging connections between the biopharmaceutical sectors of Japan and the United States (US). Key participants included Erin Mistry from CorMedix, Imran Nasrullah from Bayer Pharmaceuticals, and Incubate team members Maggie Ambrose and Jay Perron.

The event began with presentations by Fukuoka's Governor and Kyushu University, introducing three startups: Hirotsu Bio Science, Feliqs, and CubicStars. This set the stage for discussions on potential partnerships and opportunities in the life sciences sector, bolstered by a networking reception.

The following day, a successful roundtable discussion was hosted by the US Department of State, convening Fukuoka-based startups, government ministers, US venture capitalists, and Incubate team members. Conversations revolved around securing investments from US VCs and navigating the complex process of Japanese startups entering the US market.
