[Content]

When expanding beyond the domestic market into more expansive overseas markets, it is essential to develop products and services that are tailored to local social issues, cultures and climates. Therefore, by incorporating a wide variety of perspectives, including those from Europe and the USA, from the development stage, it is possible to develop business with a sense of speed.

In this presentation, Mike will introduce the good example of North American start-ups, including Rhapsody's portfolio, and case studies on how Japanese companies can effectively engage with them.
