Words From Our Community

SVJP unites organizations across the US and Japan around the intersection of business and technology. Working closely with SVJP’s curated small group engagements has enabled us to create meaningful and engaging experiences. As Rubrik is changing the future of cybersecurity, being a part of the SVJP community helps us bring our differentiated story to key leaders across Japan.

-Bipul Sinha, CEO and Co-Founder, Rubrik

Early in my career, I had an exciting opportunity to travel and live in Japan, which I consider an impactful time in my professional journey. Through interacting in high-level discussions as a speaker at the SVJP Annual Retreat, I am impressed by the outstanding community of top CEOs that SVJP has developed. SVJP has continued to help facilitate meaningful interactions and in-depth conversations with peer executives.
