About J-IIN
Japan Impact Investment Network (J-IIN) focuses on supporting entrepreneurs and investors to build impactful, scalable business beyond Japan. Meros is a founding member of J-IIN.

J-IIN was created as a forum for entrepreneurs, investors and supporters of global business with impact to communicate frankly, exploring how global and domestic issues intersect.

Internationally, food and agriculture has attracted the most impact investment attention, but is a sector that has received much less attention in Japan. Meros works with our J-IIN colleagues to raise awareness of global trends in impact investment and business in agriculture and food in Japan and globally.
