We invited Reina Sato, Senior Director at NEDO Silicon Valley office, to our special meeting this Saturday. She shared an interesting research result on startups' patenting. Because it is not published, I don't write it here. She also shared what she found as differences between Japan and Silicon Valley. One of them was acceptance of failure. One attendee suggested that it be broken down to four categories: learnable, necessary, unavoidable and unnecessary. Both Japan and Silicon Valley accept the third one, but Japanese may less appreciate the first two failures than people in Silicon Valley. Another attendee suggested that discussion in more transparent manner would need more tolerance to different ideas. It was such a special meeting that we learned many thing from the speaker and attendees. Thanks!
