VisasQ is an expert network specialized on Japan. It was launched in 2012 as Walkntalk Inc. and later rebranded. The company operates two business areas:
- A standard expert network called VQ
- A DIY marketplace called “spot consulting”
The founders and management team combine experience from investment banks (Goldman Sachs, JP Morgan) and investment firms (Sumitomo, Unison). VisasQ is the leader in the Japanese expert network market, which has seen strong growth in recent years as both GLG, AlphaSights, Atheneum and Guidepoint established offices in Tokyo.
The focus on Japan is shared with its domestic competitor Mimir Expert Research.
Inex One identified VisasQ as a regional champion in our review of the 2019 expert network market size. Regional champions have a particularly strong foothold in their respective regions.
