Expert-approved technology startups to receive 1.5 months of mentoring sessions to accelerate their entry to the Japanese market
Since its launch in 2012, AEA has provided a stage for promising entrepreneurs and startups from rapidly growing countries and regions in Asia on which they can showcase business ideas and technologies aimed at addressing social issues.
To date, a total of 247 tech startups from 16 countries and regions across greater Asia have participated in AEA events. All entrants were nominated by key notable institutions such as the Japan External Trade Organization (JETRO) and the University of Tokyo, as well as by incubators, accelerators, universities, and other institutions supporting start-up companies in their respective countries and regions.
Requiring participants to be willing to enter the Japanese market or collaborate with Japanese companies, AEA also provides close support by matching participating startups with Japanese companies. The AEA 2022 event will feature several initiatives to further accelerate collaboration between Japanese companies and participating startups.
One of such initiatives is to provide mentoring sessions by a team of mentors from venture capital firms and accelerators in Japan during the 1.5 months leading up to the event. This is expected to help entrants acquire a better understanding of the market and facilitate their collaboration with prospective Japanese partners.
Also, matchmaking and online interviews between participating startups and Japanese companies will be promoted in various ways, such as by encouraging participating companies, sponsors, nominators, and others to freely communicate with one another using the Slack communication platform, as AEA 2021 participants did.
In addition, the capital limit, one of the entry requirements, has been raised from 1 million US dollars to 3 million. This reflects the higher investment amounts in recent years for seed and early-stage startups, and it is hoped that the AEA will attract companies with better management structures, leading to more concrete business partnerships with Japanese companies.
New this year: Social Business Session for solving social problems through business
The Social Business Session based on the Seven Principles of Social Business proposed by Dr. Muhammad Yunus is being newly held this year, and 4 companies have been selected to participate in this category. Dr. Muhammad Yunus was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 2006 together with Grameen Bank for their contributions to alleviating poverty and promoting peace in Bangladesh through the founding of the Grameen Bank, which provides microcredits to the poor to help them become self-reliant. Today, he continues to advocate social business to solve social issues through business, putting it into practice with many organizations. AEA, in cooperation with Yunus Japan, will also judge the business ideas of startups based on the Seven Principles of Social Business.
AEA participating companies invited to Innovation Leaders Summit online matching event
The Innovation Leaders Summit (ILS), launched under the auspices of the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry with the aim of creating global innovation by matching the assets of major companies with the ideas and technology of startups, is one of the largest open innovation conference in Asia, attended by 700 startups and over 100 major Japanese companies. Starting this year, the 247 companies that have participated in AEA in the past will be invited to participate in ILS’s online matching event to continue supporting startups’ entry into the Japanese market.

China's export growth slowed significantly in August, customs authorities said Wednesday, as economic uncertainty is exacerbated by strict Covid-19 lockdowns across the country.
(Reuters) -European shares rose on Thursday led by gains in bank stocks after the European Central Bank delivered its biggest-ever interest rate hike to combat inflation, which is running at a half-century high and approaching double-digits. The ECB raised its benchmark lending rate by 75 basis points, as widely expected, and promised further hikes in an effort to bring inflation back towards the central bank's 2% medium-term target. "September was likely the best moment for the ECB to send this signal, given the expected slowdown ahead."
This week we’ll take a break from tipping American shares to update readers on two London-listed stocks recommended here in the past, Kromek and Tirupati Graphite. Neither has produced gains for readers and we want to establish whether there is a case for holding on to them.

FRANKFURT (Reuters) -Deutsche Bank chief Christian Sewing, painting a bleaker assessment of the German economy, warned on Wednesday that China was a considerable risk for the nation and that Europe needed big banks to fend off American competitors. The CEO of the nation's top lender said Germany would "no longer be able to avert a recession" after it became too dependent on Russian energy. Russia has halted gas supplies via a major pipeline to Germany, intensifying an economic battle between Moscow and Europe and raising the prospects of recession and energy rationing in some of the region's richest countries.
