In particular, SFC ventures may receive know-how on how to start a business, how to apply for business model patents, consulting services on management, information about capital support or support on publication of stocks as well as opportunities to interact with many other SFC ventures. Also, opportunities to exchange information with outside companies interested in venture business as well as those starting activities at Keio Research Institute at SFC will be provided. The outside companies, however, will have direct access to information of venture businesses about to be created at SFC by participating in this venture forum.
