Social Issues and The Theme of My Business

In order to sustain the domestic agriculture, forestry and fisheries industry, it is necessary to create an economically self-sustaining industrial base and create an environment in which the people who produce can earn a sustainable profit. I am looking for a theme for creating this industrial base and considering commercialization.


In this program, I think that I can get new ideas by exchanging ideas with entrepreneurs, mentors and participants from other companies.
I want to make a social impact by creating a new agriculture, forestry and fisheries industry that are independent of governmental support.
