I made a few notes during the summit which are listed below. Although I am not sure if the business plans presented were restricted or copyrighted in any way. The first presented concept won the conference (Like a family).

I even had the opportunity to sit behind the CEO of General Electric Japan and next to the President of Kaplan Japan
