Reinforcing your business in Japan

We work Pharma, Biopharma, Biotech and disruptive LifeScience projects

We solve the three biggest pains when doing B2B business in Japan

1. The headache of not meeting your targets or achieving expected traction.

  • Helping you better understand your market dynamics
  • We put feet on the ground for you
  • Sales training
  • Targeting
  • Due Diligence of partners
  • Understanding and reinforcing your Japanese ecosystem

We help you get the sales you deserve! – Problem solved!

2. Suffering from things lost in translation.

  • Basic business navigation is sometimes quite the challenge!
  • Japanese business culture is different on so many levels in how business is conducted, how meetings work and how relationships are built.
  • There are many possibilities to make mistakes when navigating relationships, partnerships, branch office management teams etc in Japan. Especially when you are far away.
  • Bridging the cultural gaps.
  • Understand what’s happened or is happening in the process, meetings etc.
  • Reinforcing your teams and collaboration.

We help you understand and communicate! – Problem solved!

3. Struggling with strategies, expectations and timeframes for the Japanese market.

  • We help you avoid the pitfalls and to stand strong!
  • Scrutinizing your entry strategy
  • Optimizing your strategies for Japan.
  • Recalibrating your expectations.
  • Japan Inc is more thorough, slower to move and generally “different” from all other marketplaces in this World.
  • Japan’s business culture is far from self-explanatory.
  • The timeframes of doing business in Japan are generally frustratingly long.
  • The most costly mistakes can be boiled down to having the wrong strategies coupled with the wrong set of expectations and poor due diligence.

We cover your back! – All the way!

”I have worked with Stefan Sandström outside of BioSector for over a year and will continue to work with them in BioSector. This is an exceptionally highly skilled partner, walking the extra miles and having made all the difference for building our traction in Japan.”

Mr Sandström delivered an amazing seminar for our members in Sep 2021. He combined extensive specialist knowledge of the Japanese bio- and laboratory market and how to bridge cultural differences. He also followed up with a most insightful Q&A session regarding doing business in Japan. We can warmly recommend this partner as deeply insightful speakers and hope to work with BioSector on a different project in the near future.
