[PODCAST] Disruption, Resilience and Start-up Life in Japan, with Tim Romero

This episode takes a cross-cultural approach to the mental game of entrepreneurship. My guest is Tim Romero, an innovator, author and entrepreneur who’s lived in Japan for 20 years and has his own podcast at Disrupting Japan. He believes in the potential of its startup community, which is partly informed by his experience observing how resilient the Japanese were in the big earthquake of 2011.

Tim gives us an inside view of recent examples of disruption in Japan (and his opinion of where potential innovation lies), the surprising trend of female entrepreneurship and how he sees entrepreneurs managing failure in a culture that has traditionally been very risk averse.
