The Japan Business Model Competition Niigata Round 2017


The Japan Business Model Competition Niigata Round 2017 was held at Niigata University on December 3, 2017 (Sun).
This competition was organized by Hokuetsu Bank and International Collaboration for Local Organizations in Venture and Entrepreneurship (ICLOVE), co-organized by Niigata University and International University of Japan (IUJ).

The most important of this competition is identifying and tracking business model hypotheses and testing and validating those hypotheses with customers.

Eight teams participated from 4 universities and gave the 10 minutes presentation each.
As a result of strict examination, “Fresh Deli” business model presented by one of IUJ team (Nguyen Thuy Duong and Vu Manh Tuan) received the ICLOVE award and the entry qualifications for the JBMC Tokyo round in February.
We hope they brush up the “Fresh Deli” in order to participate the IBMC which will be held in U.S.A.
