Singapore – September 17, 2018

As the world’s third-largest economy, Japan is an exciting place to do business. Global companies, both small and large, have discovered exceptional business opportunities in Japan, but many organizations and individuals struggle with language, cultural, and regulatory differences. Joel Devidal and his partner started after identifying an opportunity to provide business services and support to foreigners who would like to tap into the Japanese market, or who already have an established company in the country.

SMEJapan’s CEO Joel Devidal is a seasoned businessman with over 30 years of experience working in Asia primarily operating in the online marketing and retail spaces. Joel is fluent in Japanese, highly effective in business negotiations, and an expert in managing major projects from start to finish. Over the years, he has found investors for new ideas, generated profits, and oversaw the sale of various companies.

In addition to providing support services, aims to be a bilingual, news-driven repository of information and knowledge for Japan’s SMEs. SMEJapan utilizes its team from around the world to provide crucial advice and information to help business owners understand the difficulties of running a business in Japan. By tapping into the company’s network and experience, foreign entrepreneurs can make beneficial business decisions and can regain their time, so they can focus on building the business, which is the most important.

Joel enjoys sharing his passion and knowledge for his career with others. He serves as an advisor and board member to companies, helping them create bright futures through decisions around strategy, marketing, and development. His intuition and experience helps these organizations eliminate excessive operational costs while still delivering quality to the end users.

“Keep your speed going as much as possible. And by that, I mean constantly be creating, testing, analyzing and then if you find something that works really well, repeat as quickly as you can. If you don’t have speed these days, you’re going to fall behind. I think it’s critical to keep this testing process in place and don’t rest on the successes you’ve had or even on the growth of the business. You have to keep pushing every day,” stated Devidal
