Had a good meeting with Akiko Matsunobu, Executive Director of the Tokyo Foundation, this morning.
I first met her some years ago when she was Chief Officer of Peace Winds Japan. She’s one of those unusual people with experience at both NGOs and corporations, having worked for both FedEx and American Express in her previous incarnations.
Tokyo Foundation, ETIC (Entrepreneurial Training for Innovative Communities) and Japan Society’s U.S.-Japan Innovators Network will be collaborating on a project this fall to bring Japanese social entrepreneurs from regions outside of Tokyo to the United States to share experiences with Americans focused on community building in economically distressed areas.
