First-ever Deep Tech Fukuoka Event Held

Fukuoka Prefecture is currently pursuing a wide range of initiatives to incubate emerging industries. As one of these efforts, Deep Tech Fukuoka aims to match high-tech startups with venture capital firms and big corporations with an interest in emerging technologies. About 100 people attended the event, which featured talks by tech sector venture company representatives.

Government of Japan to Offer a New Startup Visa to Foreign Nationals
The Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry and the Ministry of Justice have announced plans to adopt the Startup Visa, a new visa category aimed at attracting foreign entrepreneurs to Japan, in fiscal 2018. At present, foreign nationals can acquire a 6-month version of this visa, but only in the National Strategic Special Zones of Tokyo and Fukuoka. Many have said that six months is not enough time for foreigners who have just arrived in Japan to rent an office, open bank accounts, and do everything else they need to do to prepare for starting a company. This is why the new visa will be extended to one year and will be made available nationwide. With this move, many more municipalities are expected to take measures to attract foreign entrepreneurs to their regions.

Number of Companies Acquiring Land for Factories in Kyushu Up
According to statistics released by the Kyushu Bureau of Economy, Trade and Industry for the first half of 2017, the number of companies that purchased or leased at least 1,000 m2 of land for factories increased to 44 (+8 year-on-year), marking the first first-half increase in three years. Total land area expanded 2.9 times to 79 hectares. By prefecture, the number of acquisitions was highest in Fukuoka at 15, followed by eight each in Kumamoto and Miyazaki, five in Nagasaki and two in Oita. Of these, 13 were from the food sector. This suggests that capital investment is on the uptick on the back of rising corporate profits.

FIBA Holds Event at Governor's Residence
