Becoming a JMEC Project Client

Is your company intending to expand in the Japanese market?

The Japan Market Expansion Competition (JMEC), a business plan writing competition that is supported by 16 foreign chambers in Japan, can provide you with a tailor-made business plan that addresses your company’s specific business objectives in the Japanese market.

JMEC, now in its 18th year, is a program designed to help foreign organizations, including large corporations and SMEs (Project Clients), enter or expand their business in the Japanese market, while at the same time giving young executives (Participants) the opportunity to improve their business skills.  After completing a series of lectures and workshops on how to do business in Japan, program participants work together in teams of five or six, supported by a team mentor and financial consultant, to write a business plan for their assigned project client. 

The project clients benefit by receiving a well-researched, quality business plan that is addressing their activities in the Japanese market for a fraction of the cost of hiring outside consultants.

The deadline for project clients to apply this year is November 18.
