AdScale E-Commerce Certified as an IT Subsidy Tool by the Japanese Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry!

I didn’t realize that I was a week behind in blogging…
A week goes by in the blink of an eye…

Today, I would like to write about some very exciting news.
We have been selected as one of the IT support providers in the IT introduction subsidy 2021 program by the Japanese Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry. A large company like Rakuten, my previous employer, might have been able to handle this easily with a person in charge or an outsourced company, but Kaori, my wife, had to read the IT introduction subsidy guide from the beginning and revised it many times before it was finally adopted on June 3rd. Once again, I was able to experience the thrill of working in such a startup environment to build almost everything from scratch. Anyway, I’m super-excited about this!

Although there will be a review process for our readers, we believe that we will be more likely to be helpful for our readers in terms of attracting customers to their stores and analyzing them on your e-shops, as we will be able to use AdScale E-Commerce, the world’s unique e-commerce marketing platform at the only half the original cost of the tool.

We are planning to prepare a service page with easy-to-understand application procedures after receiving this adoption notice. We will let you know as soon as it is ready, and we look forward to working with you!
