First appeared on medium
We are so excited to share with you the wonderful news we received recently. Our team has been chosen among many to be part of a 9 day fully sponsored training program under the name “The Training Program for Improving the Business Environment related to Trade and Investment”. Only the start-ups with excellent ideas have been given full sponsorship.
From 28th September to 6th October 2017 we shall be proud guests of the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry (METI) of Japan, the organizer of the program. The main facilitator of the program is the Association for Overseas Technical Cooperation and Sustainable Partnerships (AOTS) formerly known as HIDA. It is an organization for human resources development and promoting of technical cooperation through training, experts dispatch and other programs.
The aim of the program is to equip the trainees with Japanese business practices, technology trends and connect likeminded businesses together, boost further collaboration, ideas and partnerships.
The 9 day program is precisely outlined consisting of lectures, workshops, site visits to big Japanese companies such as SoftBank. Visits are scheduled to the CEATEC Japan CPS/IoT Exhibition as well, where our team representatives will be introduced to possible partners and VC’s that are seeking excellent foreign investment opportunities. Along with Luxtag there will be 9 more start-up projects from ASEAN countries whose ideas were rated as outstanding in the eyes of the Japanese Ministry of Economy, Trade and Investment (METI).
We are deeply honoured that our start-up has been chosen by the Japanese Government for this collaboration project and we are anxious to see what new opportunities await LuxTag on the Japanese doorstep.
LuxTag provides the first ever digitized certificates of authenticity for luxury consumer products (or machines, or vehicles, etc.) on a blockchain that are updatable, can have messages attached, and their conjoint ownership can be flexibly transferred.
Our project uses the NEM Blockchain Technology, which powers the mechanisms LuxTag leverages on.
