Core Values

EMIJ stands for the Entrepreneur Mentoring Initiative in Japan.  

The core values of EMI are to:

  • Value and motivate Innovation
  • Respect and support talented and motivated individuals of both genders
  • Nurture collaboration and knowledge-sharing
  • Support ideas that matter to the community and can make a positive difference to the world

EMI was started in 2010 as an effort to offer support to a growing number of motivated individuals who are attracted to the idea of starting their own businesses.  It is also in response to the huge need for innovation and increased productivity in this market.  By offering a support network EMI hopes to reduce some of the risk for entrepreneurs and also create synergy between them by creating a collaborative community.  We hope to see more entrepreneurial men and women entering the market successfully and making a difference in their respective industries.
