* There is a possibillity changing program contents and arrangements

Seminars and workshops will invite experts, investors, entrepreneurs, etc. who have a wealth of knowledge about women's entrepreneurship in Japan and overseas as lecturers. Then, we will input practical knowledge in a lecture format according to the theme. By providing time for discussions among participants so that they do not end with mere input, we aim to attract them to the company and build a community among participants. It provides a place for students to pitch for VCs and entrepreneurial supporters, and provides opportunities for networking with VCs and entrepreneurial supporters.

The optional seminar (optional) invites thematic practitioners as instructors and provides basic exercises. We also support catch-up to this program. In addition, we plan to hold a social gathering after the selective seminar, which will support the building of a community among the participants.

In individual mentoring, we understand the issues and needs of each program student and provide individual consultation for scale-up. Based on that information, we will not only provide mentoring opportunities with mentors according to the situation of the program students, but also brush up the business model and organize the appeal points at the time of presentation. In addition, we will support the clarification of scale-up plans, including overseas expansion, and the implementation of financing methods.
