A private foundation commemorating the late Eiichi Shibusawa, a leading industrialist in the early 20th century, is inviting businesspeople to join a “centenary mission” it plans to send to the United States this year to retrace the footsteps of a trade mission by Shibusawa in 1909.

“We hope that the businessmen will learn about the boundless entrepreneurial spirit (of Shibusawa’s mission) 100 years ago and create networks with the next generation of U.S. leaders,” an official at the Shibusawa Eiichi Memorial Foundation said.
