L Marks launches in Japan
Following the announcement of our first Asia-based programme with BMW Financial Services Japan, we are proud to announce the launch of our corporate innovation operations in Japan.
Daniel Saunders, L Marks chief executive, said: “Japan is a hugely exciting market for us with some of the strongest corporate brands in the world and a large network of innovative technology startups.
“We see our agreement with BMW as the first of many innovation programmes that we hope to deliver in Japan, a country with an already established history of automotive and technological innovation,” he added.
Stuart Marks, L Marks founder and chairman of L Marks, also spoke about the news: “This is an exciting new market for us, and whilst we’ve previously had Japanese startups apply to our UK programmes, we’re looking forward to accessing more of the fantastic talent and solutions Japan has to offer.
“Giving these entrepreneurs access to the leadership of BMW Group Financial Services Japan and to relevant functional teams will greatly accelerate their product development and business growth in the financial sector” he added.
