In recent years, the role of startups (venture companies) produced by local institutions of higher education and other institutions has become extremely important as a driver of economic growth in emerging Asian countries. Science and technology-based entrepreneurship is flourishing, attracting attention from Japanese companies and venture capitalists, and actually attracting investment.
However, what is required of the companies of the future is not merely technological superiority. In recent years, the terms “”sustainable investment”” and “”ESG investment”” have come to be heard. With the adoption of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and the Paris Agreement, ESG investments that work toward the creation of a sustainable society have been attracting attention.
Through these exchange activities, students will have an opportunity to learn from each other about venture investment and startups (entrepreneurship) from the perspective of ESG management through discussions through group work. Also students from overseas universities will learn about what they need to focus on in order to obtain investment when they start a business using their own technology in the future, and the significance of giving back to society the results of their research. The purpose of this project is to help students of J. F. Oberlin University learn about the criteria for judgment when making investments, and to help them develop their future careers.

What I liked the most is the high-caliber and experienced lecturers. They really are well-experienced and expert on the lecture they discussed. As a student, I really learned a lot and it inspired me to put up my own ESG start-up business in my country, which is the Philippines.

The lectures were great and apart from that the program allowed us to have time for exploring Japan which was very considerable.
