Wood business matchmaking between Finland and Japan
1 September: DL for Finnish participant registration
Week 36: We will inform which companies will be selected to the business matchmaking.

1 – 30 October: Business matching (agreeing on meetings between all parties)
November 2 – 3: Business meetings (every day 08:00 – 11:00 Finnish time). Kindly reserve this time from your calendar. 
 
Practicalities:
Business matching is aimed at mid- to large-size companies that have the financial and personal resources needed to pursue business opportunities in Japan. Ability to hire a Japanese-speaking staff member or an interpreter for later parts of the project is key to success. This matchmaking has a maximum number of participants (10). We especially encourage companies that have not previously been involved in Business Finland activities in Japan to join.
 
Like mentioned in the invitaion, meetings will be arranged based on the Japanese participants’ wishes, meaning that all meetings are with Japanese companies that have specifically expressed interest in your company and solutions. We cannot guarantee a certain number of meetings, also kindly note that there may be a great difference in the amount of meetings arranged for each participating company according to how well their product fits to Japanese market need.
