The purpose of this paper was to add additional literature to the discussion about increasing entrepreneurship in Japan. We visited three top business universities within a close distance to Silicon Valley to get a better understanding of how they are currently promoting entrepreneurship, and to gain a better perspective on their educational approaches, connections to businesses and alumni networks. The universities include the Stanford Graduate School of Business; The University of California, Berkeley Haas School of Business; and The University of California, Davis Graduate School of Management. After an overview of each university, some suggestions are provided in regards to how Japanese business universities can promote entrepreneurship.
