<September 26, 2018: 1st Lecture Program (Orientation and Explanation of the Basics of PR)>
After learning an overview of the program and introducing themselves to each other, the participants met their accelerators and received a lecture on the basics of PR.
Since some of the participants live far from Tokyo, they will attend lectures online when they cannot make it to Tokyo.
Each company has two accelerators.
Accelerators are members of Deloitte Tohmatsu Venture Support Co., Ltd. The accelerators will hold a mentoring session once every two weeks to help participants overcome their challenges, giving advice on how to make the most of the APT Women program and how to make their business grow.
After meeting the accelerators, the participants received a lecture and learned the know-how of PR, which is an essential aspect of running a business.
<October 2, 2018: 1st Event Program: Problem Solving Workshop>
This program aimed to create relationships for mutual support among the participants by sharing the challenges they face in scaling up their business and discussing solutions together.
The participants were divided into groups with three to four people who mutually gave advice to help each other solve their companies’ challenges.
