On June 26th, Happo-en finalized a comprehensive partnership agreement with Tokushima High School of Commerce and their model company initiative ComCom.
We are committed to fostering the next generation of leaders who will contribute to society, as well as supporting local town and community initiatives.
Last year, we were introduced to Tokushima High School of Commerce through the Olympics Host Town Initiative. The business research club at the school runs an in-school model company called ComCom.
ComCom stands for “commercial and communication,” and it was started eight years ago as an arm of the business research club with a vision to create new business opportunities through connecting people.
This model company started a factory for food processing and production in Cambodia in partnership with the local government. This factory produces ice cream and florentine biscuits using coconut sugar, and also processes cashew nuts, a local specialty. These products are sold in Cambodia and are also exported to Japan. The proceeds from the project are donated to Cambodia-Japan Friendship Middle and High School in Cambodia, and local people also gain employment opportunities at the factory. Tokushima prefecture also happens to be hosting Cambodia as part of the Tokyo Olympics Host Town Initiative.
These high school students in Tokushima are using their passion, youthful energy, and innovative ideas to try new things and are continuing to grow their business.
When we met these high schoolers last year, we were deeply inspired by their business but even more so by their strong vision. They reminded us of what is truly important in running a business.
We felt that if we collaborated with these students, we would be supporting the next generation of leaders who would impact society, and we ourselves would also be influenced and encouraged to grow. This strong sense led us to the comprehensive partnership agreement.
We look forward to how this partnership will unfold from here on out, and we hope that you will be inspired as well.
