Japan Business Incubation Association

In June 2008, it was determined that the Japan Association of New Business Incubation Organizations (JANBO) would come to the end in March 2009. Facing that fact, with the initiative of Mr. Satoshi Hoshino, CEO of Incubation Manager Training Institute, a pioneer of business incubation industry in Japan with 20 years experiences, the JBIA was established in June 2009 as a membership association of business incubators in Japan, networking incubation managers, business incubators and other support professionals. Currently, there is no specific policy to promote BI in Japanese government. However, the JBIA has an explicit policy that the BI is inevitable in Japan in order to nurture the sprouts of new industry, and that the IM has a critical role to support entrepreneurial activities as intermediary personnel.
