Fukuoka City’s New Startup System

In a strategic move to foster entrepreneurial growth, Fukuoka City is revamping its startup support system. Starting next April, the city will integrate two of its key startup facilities, Fukuoka Growth Next (FGN) and Startup Café, to provide seamless and comprehensive assistance to entrepreneurs from the inception of their ideas to the growth and expansion stages. FGN, established in 2017, has been a crucial platform for startups, aiding companies in securing substantial funding and generating significant employment opportunities. Startup Café, since its inception in 2014, has been a vital resource for aspiring entrepreneurs, offering expert advice on startup preparation and personnel recruitment. The integration of these two facilities is poised to create a more robust and supportive environment for startups, with the aim of nurturing companies that can compete on a global scale. The initiative will also see the expansion of FGN’s startup support programs to a broader community, facilitating on-demand access to critical resources and support.
