Fukuoka Venture Market (FVM) is a business matching site connecting start-ups (entrepreneurial ventures) and potential business partners.
Start-ups have abundant business plans for new products and services, but their human, managerial and financial resources are usually insufficient. This means that, in order to realize their business plans, they have to acquire investment from others for such resources. However, it takes a huge amount of time and effort to secure such resources by themselves. This is a major obstacle for them, preventing their development.
On the other hand, for companies and investors looking for new technologies or new business fields to enter, it is becoming more difficult to discover start-ups with suitable business plans in the sea of information.
Based on such needs of both start-ups and potential business partners, the Fukuoka Venture Business Support Association hosts the FVM to provide business matching opportunities.
