Yahoo Japan Corporation (hereinafter Yahoo! JAPAN) announced today the establishment and the start of business of its wholly-owned US-based subsidiary, YJ America, Inc. (*1) (hereinafter YJ America). YJ America aims to support promising US start-ups and potential internet services expanding into the Japan market.
In US, mainly in Silicon Valley, more and more internet-related
start-ups incorporated by small groups of young entrepreneurs are
emerging. We often see these kinds of start-ups expanding their business
globally without limiting themselves within the borders of a country.
However, when expanding into the Japan market, it is difficult to succeed single-handedly as it is a market with unique trade practices and a legal system for business different from that of US.
While identifying promising local start-ups and potential internet
services early on, YJ America will offer full support to those who seek
to expand and succeed in Japan by leveraging Yahoo! JAPAN’s years of
experience, knowledge and assets acquired within the Japanese internet
Also, by leveraging Japan’s leading internet portal site “Yahoo! JAPAN” and its outstanding ability to attract users, and by recognizing those promising start-ups as business partners, YJ America aims to maximize the synergy between all parties.
YJ America also plans to support Japanese start-ups and internet services expanding into the US market in the near future.
