【東京Session】スタートアップ×地方創生フォーラム Forums on the Regional Development by Start-up Clusters

Description

情報技術を活用したスタートアップ企業の創業が盛んになりつつある。その背景として、情報技術の発展により、多彩なビジネスモデルの創出が可能になったことに加え、従来の産業と比較して創業のコストが低減し、少ない資金で事業を始めることが可能となったことが挙げられる。その一方で、情報技術を活用した事業の特性として、場所の制約から比較的自由であるという面がある。そのため、地方で創業したり、地方にサテライトオフィスと構える企業も出てきている。このような中、地域においてスタートアップ企業を育成したり、誘致することにより、その地域の活性化を図る取り組みを行える可能性が出てきている。
地方がスタートアップ企業を誘致し、育成するためにはどのような条件が必要だろうか。また、企業には地方に立地することで、どのようなメリットがあるのだろうか。本フォーラムでは、国際色豊かな学生が集まる国際大学が立地する南魚沼市との連携のもと、東京および南魚沼市でフォーラムを開催し、スタートアップ企業の集積による地方創生の可能性について議論を行う。

There is a growing trend of establishing start-up firms using Information Technology (IT). With the rapid development of the technology, a variety of new services can be created, and the cost for establishing a new firm is drastically reduced. On the other hand, IT-intensive businesses are relatively flexible in terms of the choice of location. There are more firms which are established and have satellite offices in countryside and provinces, rather than metropolitan areas. From public policy’s perspective, there is a possibility to promote and attract start-ups to vitalize the local community.
What are the conditions for local community to successfully attract and promote start-up firms? What are the benefits for start-ups to locate in rural area? By collaborating with Minami-Uonuma City, in which International University of Japan locates with a variety of international students, this forum discusses the possibility of local vitalizations by the accumulating startup firms.

※東京セッション、南魚沼セッションはそれぞれ個別に参加可能です。
Tokyo and Minami-Uonuma Sessions are to be independently attended.
