Are you a business owner looking for a business plan tailored to the Japanese market for your market entry or business expansion? If so, take part in the Japan Market Expansion Competition (JMEC). The ANZCCJ is a proud founder and sponsor of the JMEC programme and encourages our members and the greater business community to get involved.
As a JMEC Project Client, you can receive a professional business plan developed by some of Japan's brightest up-and-coming business leaders for a fraction of the cost of hiring outside consultants. To learn more about this opportunity, including eligibility requirements, visit the JMEC homepage at www.jmec.gr.jp. You can find the application form here: http://www.jmec.gr.jp/project-clients/apply. Project Client application deadline: November 30, Project Client Fee: ¥1,500,000. Early Bird Special application deadline: 30 September, Project Client Fee: ¥1,200,000.
JMEC is also looking for individual applicants to participate in the program and learn how to research and develop a professional business plan. This ‘mini MBA’ style program includes classroom training with experienced executives and successful entrepreneurs as lecturers—as well as hands-on experience in writing a business plan for a real business project, submitted by a real company. Interested applicants can find more information and apply here: http://www.jmec.gr.jp/participants. Apply on-line by 15 October.
