Posted in: Japan: A paradise for entrepreneurs See in context

stevecpfc - thanks for the input and idea - we will actually be featuring in INSIGHT a series of interviews with some of the most successful business-leaders in Japan & asking them why/how they give back to society or charities etc (this will be under the new "NGOs & Social Entrepreneurship - Empowering Lives Through Giving" Lens). The intro piece to the series is already live for you to read, and the first interview (up next week) will be with Harry Hill (actually of Oak Lawn Marketing..., which recently entered into an agreement with docomo who will acquire 51% of OLM for 31 billion yen (approx US$310 Million)), the second will be with Bill Werlin (currently Japan Country Manager of Burton (snowboards), and formerly Japan Country Manager at Patagonia). Another of the contributors on Insight is Jeremy Prepscius, who is Asia Director of BSR (Business for Social Responsibility), currently based in HK, but who resided in Japan previously, and whose organization consults on this very area you identify (his story is under the SUSTAINABILITY lens) - we hope there are some eco-friendly and profit sharing stories you will enjoy amongst these and those still to come... thanks for being a reader of JT...
