Japan’s first startup accelerator program specifiscally for students
This program supports all student start-ups regardless of whether they are operated by students in primary, junior high or high schools, colleges, universities or graduate schools. It provides the resources necessary for business growth to selected companies, such as mentoring, data management, public relations, recruiting, and support in securing business funding. It also offers a safety net in the form of employment support in the event of a business failure. The program launched in April 2019 and has supported more than 100* student entrepreneurs so far. It holds quarterly ‘demonstration day’ events to develop the next generation of entrepreneurs with a panel of twelve advisers, including Mr. Kazuma Ieiri, the President and CEO of CAMPFIRE, Inc.
