Mito visit - Regional Revitalization in Mito with GLOBIS

GLOBIS has been actively conducting CSR (Corporate Social Responsibilities) activities in Mito, Ibaraki prefecture in Japan, to revitalize the local economy. Starting from 2021, we launched a special three day on-campus course at Mito for students to learn about regional revitalization in the context of business through examples from our own activities.

The main objective of the course is to understand regional revitalization through the macro-environment (especially economical & political) and cultural perspectives, and to learn how leaders, including GLOBIS President Hori and young local business leader Mr. Kato from Meiri Shurui Co., Ltd, with their kokorozashi can revitalize it with the power of business. The course is designed to combine case-studies and lectures with field visits to local companies and a basketball match by the Ibaraki Robots basketball team, which is owned by GLOBIS.

G1 Global Conference and forum

The G1 Global conference unites luminaries from government, business, academia, and media to exchange ideas on the challenges facing Asia and the world. Past participants include Nik Gowing (International Journalist), Kathy Matsui (Chief Japan Equity Strategy, Goldman Sachs), and Ian Bremmer (Founder and President, Eurasia Group).


The GLOBIS Venture Challenge (G-CHALLENGE), is GLOBIS's annual business plan competition. The purpose of the G-CHALLENGE is to encourage the creation of new business by supporting students or alumni who wish to start a new business. The competition offers you the chance to compete for startup capital and coaching, with a grand prize of up to 10 million JPY in investment funds (as of 2022).
