In December 2021, Nudge signed an agreement with Komatsu City, Ishikawa Prefecture (Mayor: Katsuei Miyahashi, hereinafter “Komatsu City”) to promote measures related to regional revitalization through Fintech. I’m here.
The purpose of this agreement is for Nudge and Komatsu City to work closely together and cooperate to promote measures to create a related population and enrich the lives of citizens through Fintech. In addition to the issuance of an affiliated credit card with Komatsu City to create and improve engagement, efforts to improve the financial literacy of young people are also included.

This time, the person in charge of Nudge visited Komatsu Municipal High School and gave a face-to-face lecture to 33 third-year high school students. This time it will be the second time following January last year.
