In this program, students who aspire to start a business will participate in a four-and-a-half-month program that is held once every six months. They will freely propose and develop blockchain-related business models and sample software to realize them. They will fully demonstrate their abilities and work on creating completely new business models.

Applications for this program have closed.

> Elite minority students

The program widely recruits students who are interested in blockchain and entrepreneurship from both inside and outside the university.
However, only a select few students can participate.

> Not only business planning but also application development

In the program, you will develop not only your own original business plan but also a sample application software to realize it.

> Long duration

The program will last for a relatively long period of about four and a half months.
​To plan and implement a business, we believe
that it is not only necessary to have imagination, planning skills and to think critically, but also to keep developing applications.

> Best teachers

During the program, you will receive advice on business planning, app development and more from various partners and collaborators such as venture capitalists, tech startups, blockchain specialists and legal experts.

> Best dedicated space

You will have access to a dedicated space on the Hongo Campus. Besides spaces for group work, there are also fully private rooms where you can focus on intellectual activities.

> Reward

Participating teams will be rewarded with up to 900,000 yen during the program.
