The Entrepreneurship Experience Program “TOKKA” is a hands-on educational program that allows high school students enrolled in or residing in Chiba Prefecture to experience starting up a business. The program provides 300,000 yen worth of activity expenses and a place to communicate with working mentors to promote and support the realization of ideas for high school students who want to try “TOKKA” activities, create a “start” that will influence the world, or “TOKKA” in a certain field and realize their own ideas. The program provides 300,000 yen worth of activity expenses and a place to communicate with working mentors to promote and support the realization of ideas.
This program is implemented by Chiba University as one of the programs of the EDGE-PRIME Initiative.
The kick-off event brought together the adopted participants, business mentors, student supporters, Startup Lab staff, GTIE officials, and Chiba Prefecture education officials.
