2015 Host: Embassy of Sweden and the Swedish Chamber of Commerce
We are happy to announce that this year’s Awards will be conducted in partnership with the Embassy of Sweden and the Swedish Chamber of Commerce in Japan. As a leading innovative country, often ranked as one of the most creative in the world, Sweden embodies the spirit behind TEAJ and provides a valuable network for this year’s winners. The Embassy of Sweden Award will be given to a Japanese entrepreneur who best represents the risk-embracing spirit of entrepreneurship and who would benefit from the networking opportunities within any of the innovative business sectors in Sweden. The winner will be invited to a study trip in Sweden in 2015, and will be invited to key entrepreneurship events at the Swedish Embassy from April 2015 through March 2016.
The Swedish Chamber of Commerce Award will be presented to an entrepreneur whose business has at least some international content or aspiration. The prize will include one year corporate level membership in SCCJ and free access to SCCJ events during the period, offering key business networking opportunities from April 2015 through March 2016.
The winners will be recognized at the Awards Ceremony hosted by the Swedish Ambassador to Japan, Mr Magnus Robach, on Monday, April 27, 2015.
