Startup Business Support

Startup business in Japan falls far short of an international level and it needs drastic measures urgently. Today, the Japanese government cites the revival of the Japanese economy which suffered a downturn during the “lost 20 years” as one of the top priority issues and it considers and implements various measures to create and promote startup companies that have international competitiveness as one of the pillars of the growth strategy to recover “earning power.” Also, the Japan Federation of Economic Organizations made a policy recommendation for creation and development of startup companies. Startup companies in Japan are attracting remarkable attention from various quarters to play a certain role in industrial reform to win a severe international competition. They will definitely increase their importance and significance more and more in the future.
