ICT STARTUP LEAGUE

Providing Support and Fostering Competition for Technologies That Shape Japan's Future

What is ICT Startup League?

The "ICT Startup League" is a program that takes advantage of the "Startup Initiative R&D Support Project" that the Ministry of Internal Affairs and Communications (MIC) is launching this fiscal year to provide the "support" and "competition" necessary for startups to succeed by bringing together experts, companies, and organizations from both public and private sectors with knowledge of startups.

"Accepting applications at any time"
