Can small businesses and start-ups adapt to changing environments, while faced with the 

current paradigm shift in corporate financing? In this seminar, prominent professors from

foreign business schools and Japanese universities present their recent research to discuss

new methods of financing small businesses, including crowdfunding and blockchains. We

will provide new insights into new growth avenues for entrepreneurship, innovation, and

finance, in addition to their interactions towards the future growth of firms and industries,

which could be an important clue to establishing an entrepreneurial ecosystem in Japan.
