Shueisha says, “Manga Tech 2020” is a co-creation program that seeks new business ideas that are not restricted to the conventional manga business and creates new business models. We are looking for ideas on the theme of “new ideas and business proposals that will transform the entertainment industry.”

The program seeks new business proposals from startup companies and individuals for the manga, character licensing, and publishing industries. The program is accepting ideas until September 30, with a screening of submissions taking place from late October to late November.
The winning submission will receive 1 million yen to assist in implementing the proposal, while the first and second runner-ups will receive 500,000 yen and 100,000 yen respectively.
Those who are eligible for the program will be able to receive entrepreneurship and management support from the Weekly Shonen Jump editorial department and new business development department.
