<About the New Hokkaido Style Digital Innovation Program>
As the response to the COVID-19 is prolonged, there is a demand for lifestyle changes by advocating the "New Hokkaido Style" as well as business style changes in anticipation of with-corona and after-corona.
In Hokkaido, in order to ensure the continuation and development of business and secure opportunities even in the face of these changes, we are trying to match local governments and business operators in Hokkaido with various problems and start-up companies that will lead to problem solving. We support experiments. In addition, this "New Hokkaido Style Digital Innovation Program" promotes the spread of business style innovation throughout Hokkaido by visualizing its efforts.
