Last night, we attended “Women Entrepreneur Night”, an evening networking event held and run by Startup Lady Japan every month.
What is Startup Lady Japan? Startup Lady Japan is a bilingual non-profit organization run by four passionate women based in Japan.
They aim to empower female entrepreneurs in the startup community as well as encourage women to start their own projects, specifically here in Japan where the 2017 World Economic Forum ranks the country as one of the highest at risk when measuring gender gap. Japan ranks 114th in gender equality rankings out of 144 countries (see the complete WEF report here).
