Entrepreneur Mentoring Initiative In Japan

The Entrepreneur Mentoring Initiative (EMI) is all about collaboration. By bringing experienced entrepreneurs together with men and women who aspire to join their ranks, a community that thrives on innovation and knowledge sharing is being enhanced. EMI is a network that was started by various members of the business community in Japan who see the value in offering a helping hand to the next generation of business leaders. Now in its third year, EMI has established a parallel network of alumni in many fields of business.
In order to recognize individuals with the courage to take the risk of establishing their own businesses and testing their own innovation, we are pleased to announce The (third annual) Entrepreneur Awards in Japan (TEAJ) for 2012.TEAJ is an annual awards event that recognizes entrepreneurs from the Japanese and foreign business communities in Japan. This year, awards will again be offered to successful entrepreneurs in their chosen field of business. This year's awards are:
1. U.S. Ambassador's Award - for a Japanese national
2. Venture Generation Award - for an entrepreneur with an early-stage venture
3. ACCJ Director's Award -  for an entrepreneur whose business has international content or aspiration
4. Groundbreakers Award - for a Japanese woman entrepreneur showing high potential

In addition, each Award winner will be accepted as a Mentee for the Entrepreneurship Mentoring Initiative (EMI) for 2012-2013 and will be assigned a Mentor from within the Tokyo business community.
