G’s Academy has formed a unique startup ecosystem and has been providing entrepreneur and engineer training programs for working adults since 2015. As of June 2024, graduates have started businesses in 107 companies, the amount of funding has exceeded 13.9 billion yen, and they have recently been selected as a support business for Tokyo Innovation Base “STUDIO” (TiB STUDIO). We have worked hard to support their development.
This time, we will customize the know-how that G’s Academy has cultivated over the years to high school students and hold a workshop called “ENTRE CAMP” to generate entrepreneurial ideas in 3 days. This is a new challenge for G’s Academy, which was born to provide high school students with the option of starting a business in the future. In 2022, the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry published a document (*1) summarizing the current state of startups in Japan, which states that there are “no entrepreneurs around us” and that entrepreneurship education in “school education” is not sufficient. It is cited as a reason why there are few startups in Japan, and its importance is emphasized in the 5-year startup plan.According to data from the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology (*2), by 2027, elementary, junior high, and high school students will be eligible for support programs. Our goal is to have 10,000 entrepreneurship education participants per year.

Currently, many companies are collaborating with schools to offer entrepreneurship training courses, but G’s Academy was given the opportunity to enter this market by the presence of current high school teacher graduates.
Mr. Taisuke Miyaji, who is a teacher at one of the leading private mammoth schools in Fukuoka City, enrolled in the “Weekend DEV Course” at G’s Academy Fukuoka School while continuing his current job. We have developed a project called “Web Pigeon” to save teachers with our thoughts.
Even after graduating from G’s Academy, he continued to work energetically, using his own thoughts as the driving force, such as providing “primary experience work” to students. “These students only think about getting a job. I wish they could take more ownership of their lives and make their own choices.”

Mr. Miyaji’s development note (https://note.com/tie_m/n/n628766b58583) Therefore, G’s Academy, which has been proud of its support for nurturing entrepreneurs, and current high school teachers teamed up to launch ENTRE CAMP as a new challenge.
“ENTRE CAMP” aims to develop a “zest for living” with a balance of intellect, virtue, and body according to the curriculum guidelines, and provides high school students with the option of “starting a business in the future” through G’s Academy’s unique entrepreneurship education. .
During the three-day workshop, participants worked as a team to face their own original experiences and solve “personal challenges,” conducting interviews with customers and testing hypotheses while receiving mentorship from active entrepreneurs. I’ll go.
The program includes presenting business ideas in front of
entrepreneurs as a final product, and participating students are free to think about what they can do for their local area, how they can improve the world, and what they can do for the earth. I’ll ask you to come up with an idea.

We also aim to spread the word.
Eventually, we would like to give students the option of starting a business in the future, regardless of where they live, with a view to expanding it nationwide.

[About G’s ACADEMY]

“G’s ACADEMY” is an engineer and entrepreneur training school established by Digital Hollywood in April 2015 with the theme of “nurturing GEEKs who will change the world.” This concept has resonated with the school, with approximately 80% of students aspiring to start a business or seek employment at a venture company.

People who were complete programming beginners when they entered the school have created miraculous stories such as launching services one after another by the time they graduate, and successfully raising funds from VC shortly after graduation. Currently, 107 G’s startups have been born and raised funds. The total amount is 13.9 billion yen. (As of June 2024)
In addition, in order to accommodate the large number of aspiring entrepreneurs, we have established an incubation institution called “D ROCKETS,” which allows investments of up to 5 million yen. “D ROCKETS” is attached to G’s TOKYO BASE and contributes to “creating services from Japan that will change the world” by creating a chemical reaction between entrepreneurs and engineers.
Furthermore, Digital Hollywood University, the operating body, ranks 13th in the country in the number of university-based ventures established (according to the 2020 University-Started Venture Survey (Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry)) and has produced a large number of entrepreneurs. I am.
