Tokyo Fabhub believes in the rise of small. The next generation of global business will be driven by micro-multinationals collaborating each other worldwide. We have a network of more than 100 unique and trusted factories in the east side of Tokyo metropolitan area providing a wide range of manufacturing skill and technologies: from traditional Japanese craftsmen to a modern processing of metal, plastic, rubber, and many more.
We aim to promote cross-border business collaborations between foreign entrepreneurs and Tokyo factories. We believe small factories in Tokyo can be invaluable partners in the context of a new global business environment.

WHAT WE DO
Tokyo Fabhub aims to produce new business with its network of more than 100 premier small factories in Tokyo and trusted global partners. We believe there is a significant gap between the potential opportunities that can be realized if we can connect and integrate the business together. We are continuously seeking opportunities that has been untapped for years due to this gap.
Our programs and services are originated to inform, connect, and inspire global micro-multinationals to work together with small factories in Tokyo. Starting January 2018, we have initiated Tokyo Factory Discovery Program. We are also aiming to develop a financial and marketing eco-system for Tokyo factories to work with global entrepreneurs.
We are constantly seeking opportunities to create a new business by connecting the dots, finding the right components, and integrating them into a business model. We are keen to fill in the gap where the market is untapped due to a communication gap (such as language barrier) or mere lack of information (or imagination).
Tokyo Fabhub has been developing different types of business platforms to provide a place where various stakeholders can collaborate and create a business together. We are especially putting substantial efforts to enhance global partnerships. Developing a platform is a long-term commitment, but we see it as our core business and value.
One of the important mission of Tokyo Fabhub is to inspire people, young and senior, to create new ideas, innovative solutions, and sustainable business. We are continuously offering unique workshops, seminars, and various programs that people can learn, experience, network, and enjoy the excitement of new developments.
