The meeting will bring together over 30 scholars on Japan to discuss new developments in Japan, including potential opportunities opening up after the Great Eastern Japan Earthquake. We will have 22 paper presenters and discussants, with topics ranging from new firm profitability, the politics of firm creation, management of innovation, and large firm entrepreneurial processes in Japan. The goal is to lead to a better understanding of the nature of entrepreneurship, and how analyses of Japan might inform more theoretical discussions.

Also, in view of the disastrous earthquake and tsunami that has recently afflicted Japan, the conference will feature a panel of prominent experts on Japan's economic, social systems, business, and government who will discuss the effects of the great earthquake on research and today's Japan.
