Awards Program Steering Committee Chair Richard Dasher explained that the Emerging Leader Awards “recognize the impact that these companies are already beginning to have on existing industries and their value chains, both in Japan and in the U.S. As the companies continue their worldwide growth, they also provide proof of the robust innovation relationships that Silicon Valley and Japan are offering to each other.”
