Jun Yamadera, Fukushima tech entrepreneur on challenges and opportunities

I met Jun Yamadera at the SVForum Japan Pitch Night, March 10, 2016 in Menlo Park, CA. He reminded us about the 5 year anniversary of the earthquake and tsunami in the Tohoku region of Japan. His company is developing a cancer diagnostic system, and much of his work has been inspired by the strength and the fortitude of the people of Fukushima. http://www.nowhere.co.jp

His other company, Fukushima Wheel, http://fukushimawheel.org/
developing:
“A specially outfitted bicycle features environmental sensors to measure live city data such as radiation, temperature, humidity, NOX, and so on.”

Both endeavors demonstrate the forward and innovative thinking from the new entrepreneurs in the Fukushima region.
