Promoting Global Entrepreneurship
Collaboration with Small Factories in Tokyo
We believe that the next generation of global business will transform dynamically with small and medium enterprises and entrepreneurs being empowered by technologies, ubiquitous connectivity, destructive innovation in finance & logistics, worldwide proliferation of basic infrastructure, and progressive deregulation in various countries.
Our mission is to showcase the values of small factories in Tokyo from the perspective of ongoing development in global business. And produce new business collaboration between foreign entrepreneurs/SMEs overseas and Tokyo factories.
