Services to develop regional economies with regional financial institutions

The expected role of regional financial institutions (shinkin banks, shinkumi banks, JA banks, etc.) which is pursing regional revitalizaion is expanding from a provider of financial services to the key driver of community revitalization. This is because the creation of autonomous virtuous cycles within their communities (circulation of funds and reinvestment) is considered critical to regional revitalization, and will result in the expansion of the trade area and furthermore to the growth of regional financial institutions.

Given such a changing environment, we are looking for ideas for new IT services that lead to community revitalization and partners who can examine the ideas together with NTT DATA and regional financial institutions.

  • ・ Services for micro-, small and medium-sized companies
    (real estate, small factories, local shopping areas, startups, etc.)
  • ・ Services for laborers
  • ・ Services that enable local residents to live with convenience and peace of mind, etc.
