Morgan Lewis and the Tokyo Metropolitan Government would like to invite you to join us for the Acceleration Program in Tokyo for Women (APT Women) as they visit San Francisco.

APT Women is the program initiated by Yuriko Koike, the governor of Tokyo, to promote, prepare, and train top women entrepreneurs from Tokyo in their business expansion, including into the United States especially in the technology sector. The program has selected five women entrepreneurs from a large volume of applicants/competitors to come to San Francisco to give a pitch session in English. An esteemed panel of judges with a depth of experience and professional expertise in entrepreneurship, corporate finance, and investment management will evaluate the pitches and give constructive feedback.
