Azabu Insights is a boutique strategic consulting company that prides itself in working with teams of the smartest people with full commitment to helping clients develop and implement great strategies that enable them to achieve positive change in their organizations. To do that we try to be not only the most analytical but the most collaborative consulting team. In terms of focus and perspective we believe in gathering true, deep insights from the market, and using those to deliver key strategies to our clients. We achieve this partly through a very strong network both in Japan and overseas. We believe any company that works with us should expect to receive ten times the value of the investment they put into a project and strive for our clients to be 100% satisfied.
Japan is the second largest pharmaceuticals market in the world, providing the best access to care to 124 million people. Pharmaceutical prices are often set not far below US rates and set higher than many European prices. Sadly, however, when most life sciences companies think about going international, they do not think of Japan first.
For many, Japan market "seems" difficult to enter. It is far away, with time zones being different, and the rules seem to be difficult to understand.
Let our team of Japan localized professionals make the transition easy for you. We speak your language (both English and the language of business), and we can help you to navigate the complexities of Japan. Our team is made up of strategy consultants, investors, and project implementers. Most have MBAs / MPAs from top global schools.
We can help you:
- Understand the market
- Build a key opinion leader team
- Test the waters with government negotiation
- Develop a pricing strategy
- Build your two year marketing strategy
- Develop your go to market strategy
- Locate your company
- Develop business partnerships
Give us a chance to discuss your issues in coming to Japan.
The world is continuously changing with sustainability on everyone's minds. Like SDGs and ESGs, all of the terms are confusing. However, these have all been said before. In 2000, we were talking about governance, but not much happened. In 2010, companies started making CSR books, but changes were not major.
People always tell us that change is coming, that our customers, investors, employees, and partners are all changing.
But should you really believe that?
We would like to tell you about the trends that we are seeing. We would like to help you think through the real issues that will (and will not) affect your company.
How much do you need to pay attention? How can you profit from investing into sustainability now? What areas can you avoid focusing on and just maintain focus on your business? It is common for sustainability consulting companies to just push an agenda, but we promise you we will not.
We are only pushing your company to be successful. Allow us to help you understand your current and future sustainability operating environment and build a strategy through which the CEO can reduce ESG risk. Allow us to help you innovate to win more customers and more investors.
Azabu Insights works with Japanese and international companies to help them through the innovation process, based on twenty-years of gradually built up experience. Our services included working with senior management or innovation teams to develop and launch compelling new products and services or to innovate to enter a new market. We use our Genba Innovation Platform (On-site Study) and FastStudy to quickly size up opportunities, build ideas, and verify them. Projects tend to last three to six months followed by a six month implementation phase, in which we help clients to actually win new business.
