[Webinar] TOSBEC: What you need to know when setting up your corporation
If you're a foreigner starting a business in Japan, it's better to proceed as a corporation rather than a sole proprietorship, and we'll explain why. There are several forms of corporation, but the most common is the joint stock company, which can be a flexible option in many ways, including fundraising. In addition to loans from financial institutions, we will introduce you to the significance of using various public subsidies in addition to loans from financial institutions to advance your business.
In addition, the Tokyo Metropolitan Government has been actively supporting foreign entrepreneurs. In this webinar, we will hear about TOSBEC from someone in charge of the program and a user of the services provided there. The webinar Zoom link will be sent to your email before the seminar starts.
