About this event

As many as one from Facebook, as many Facebook as.

That is what we want to challenge.

Japan's average annual income is 19th in the world. On a disposable income basis it will be lower than that. Even though I do the same job I can not live a good life in Japan. It is not a country that will come to work from abroad any longer. Then, what I have to do now is to invest in human resources and funds to create a new industry that can earn foreign currency.

The world's fastest growing industry in the last 20 years is the Internet · IoT sector. Google's market capitalization is five times that of Toyota (2017). Alibaba and Tencent also emerged in China, and in countries where GDP is higher than Japan, many Internet and IoT companies that dominate the world have been born in the last 20 years.

So, how about Japan? Gulliver in Japan, Toyota is No. 1 market capital. Even in such Toyota it is only 40 to 50 in the world ranking of the market capitalization. If Japan can not generate some growth and growth companies that can earn foreign currency, high market capitalization, Japan's GDP will fall.
