Program Overview

40 entrepreneurs who are eager to create the future will talk about their thoughts
Introducting the 4th Cohort Acceleration program in Tokyo for women (APT Women) program participants.

APT Women has helped a total of 40 ambitious female entrepreneurs through the three three-month programs including individual mentoring and lecture programs. We are aiming our program at acquiring management knowledge and skills and networks necessary for scale-up and overseas expansion. To our delight, we have seen the program participants achieving many great outcomes, including successful fundraising and global expansion. The upcoming program is expecting 40 new female entrepreneurs who are about to set off on their journey to business growth and overseas expansion. Before the new program starts, we would like to have the 40 new participants share their thoughts and hopes. Ms. Natsuko Shiraki from HASUNA Co., Ltd. will also join the event as a guest speaker.

On the day of the Kick-off event, live broadcast will be made on YouTube of Bureau of Industrial and Labor Affairs, Tokyo metropolitan government.

Solve social challenges with brand business

Ms. Shiraki develops "HASUNA", an ethical jewelry brand that takes people, natural environment and society into consideration.
Although she started the business after the 2008 financial crisis and fought against invisible anxiety associated with difficulties in failing in procurement of raw materials with established traceability in the early period, she successfully managed the business which is coexisted with social contributions, through making continuous efforts to work in sales such as expanding suppliers and sales channels.
Today, along with mine workers for jewelry and selected and skilled artisans in 10 countries around the world, the company has spread and enlightened the culture of ethical consumption based on "the jewelry brand inherited to the future".
In this talk, she will talk about her experiences such as visions and actions necessary to scale up business and the process of lighting up the people’s mind around the world, purposes of life for workers and jewelry itself with the power of business.
