From March 14–June 30, 2011:
50% of all admission sales will go to Japan Society’s Earthquake Relief Fund.

Since the recent Tohoku Earthquake, some analysts have predicted Japan will see a new wave of entrepreneurial activity. Will new entrepreneurs find the capital they need? In the recent past, Japan’s capital market had been facing a challenging environment. Since 2000, initial public offerings (IPOs) in Japan averaged about 130 companies per year. Since the 2008 financial crisis, IPOs had fallen to less than a third of the previous average. Will the country witness a resurgence of IPOs after the disaster? Tetsutaro Muraki, CEO of TOKYO AIM, outlines how new initiatives by his company will help reinvigorate the Japanese capital market. TOKYO AIM is a subsidiary of Tokyo Stock Exchange and began operation in 2009. TOKYO AIM is a market for professional investors and offers a more flexible structure than other Tokyo Stock Exchange markets.
