Innovators Network


Japan Society makes real world impact through its one-of-a-kind Innovators Network. With deep links to credible and influential Japanese and American business, community, policy, NGO, and media leaders, the Innovators Network examines new ideas, emerging social trends and issues, and facilitates unique opportunities to share knowledge and insight and to catalyze positive social change. The Network staff also administers the Japan Earthquake Relief Fund (JERF), launched by Japan Society on March 12, 2011 to aid the victims of the Great East Japan Earthquake.
