The 8th Main Conference of the Association of Hyperdifferent Fields WEB:https://hic.lne.st/2019

As various measures for regional revitalization are being implemented to create local communities, attention is being focused on regional ventures as a standard bearer for the creation of new industries that will bring employment and vitality to the region. In the midst of various measures to revitalize local regions, local venture businesses are attracting attention as a standard-bearer for the creation of new industries that will bring employment and vitality to the region. How can we create and nurture industries in regions that have many disadvantages compared to urban areas in terms of "people, goods, and money," which are necessary for venture growth? The answer to this question is being found in Kumamoto Prefecture, where RIVANES has signed its first industry-academia-government-finance collaboration agreement and is aiming to build a "symbiotic industry. Focusing on Kumamoto Prefecture, which is at the origin of efforts to build a regional ecosystem that has now spread to nine regions, we will explore the essence of the ecosystem that creates industries in the region, together with founders who aim to take off as regional ventures and large companies that are in a position to support them.


We will have a program of discussions among researchers, venture companies, and large corporations from various perspectives, not limited to the themes of this session.
Audience members are invited to attend the conference. Please visit the conference website (see below).
