We are pleased to conclude the 11th cooperation agreement with Odawara City this time. Forbes JAPAN is a media that focuses on “people”. In addition to highlighting the personalities of business owners in Odawara, the management philosophy of Sontoku Ninomiya, a native of Odawara who has influenced many entrepreneurs, is a historical example of important figures in the political and business world. I would like to dig deeper into the roots of my attraction to Odawara, along with the uniqueness of the land and culture of Odawara.
Please look forward to future cooperation with Odawara City. Comment from Teruhiko Moriya (Mayor of Odawara City)
Odawara City is located in the western part of Kanagawa Prefecture, boasting a rich natural environment with forests, villages, rivers, and the sea, a key transportation hub, and history, tradition, and culture. Doing.
Odawara is rich in local resources, but the power of the government alone is not enough to make full use of this potential. Therefore, I feel that the power of private business operators and young people who will lead the future is indispensable.
Odawara has many traditional businesses and fresh and powerful businesses. With this business collaboration as an opportunity, the attractiveness of Odawara and Odawara will be conveyed not only in Japan but also to the world. I hope that young people who grew up in Japan will play an active role not only in Japan but also in the world.
About Forbes JAPAN SMALL GIANTS
A project developed by the Japanese version of “Forbes JAPAN” that picks up small but great companies rooted in the region and leaders and innovators from each region.
In Japan, there are still many companies and local governments that are unknown but have great potential to open up the future. Through “media,” “awards,” and “projects,” the scale and name recognition are “small”, but the value is “giant”, the content that will be a guidepost for leaders, and spotlight on “small giants” I aim to hit. The website will be completely renewed on April 6, 2022 (Wednesday), announcing the annual program from April 2022 to March 2023, and expanding new content.
