About Company

JETRO, or the Japan External Trade Organization, is a government-related organization that works to promote mutual trade and investment between Japan and the rest of the world. Originally established in 1958 to promote Japanese exports abroad, JETRO's core focus in the 21st century has shifted toward promoting foreign direct investment into Japan and helping small to medium size Japanese firms maximize their global export potential.

Founder’s Story

JETRO is a non-profit organization that connects businesses with the resources they need to successfully expand to Japan. Since 2003, JETRO has supported more than 15,000 business investment projects and helped over 1,500 companies successfully invest in Japan. Originally established in 1958 to promote Japanese exports abroad, JETRO's core focus has since shifted to promoting foreign direct investment (FDI) into Japan and helping small to medium-sized Japanese firms maximize their global export potential. Through JETRO, clients can incorporate their business in Japan; receive visa, immigration, and HR support; find dedicated office space; identify local government subsidies; meet Japanese business partners; and more.

JETRO has multiple offices throughout the US and around the world which assist foreign companies interested in expanding to Japan, as well as Japanese companies hoping to enter the global market. Currently, our J-Startup Program provides mentorship and networking opportunities for Japanese startups to excel on the world stage. Meanwhile, our Invest Japan division helps American companies establish a business presence in Japan.
