Kyoto SMI Presentation about Cultivating Women Entrepreneurs in Japan. In July, I had the great fortune of presenting at a great NPO called Kyoto SMI (Kyoto STEM Cells, Smart Materials & Innovation.

The goals of the presentation were the following:
1. Provide an overview of my background,
2. Share major highlights about the research I've done so far regarding female founders in Japan, and
3. Offer a few recommendations on how Kyoto SMI can cultivate and support more women entrepreneurs in Japan.
