Tokyo Animation Business Accelerator


Tokyo Animation Business Accelerator | Support for animation production companies aspiring to succeed in the international market

Tokyo Animation Business Accelerator:
Project Outline

Tokyo is home to a thriving animation industry, but much of its highly creative output is unknown outside of Japan.
The Tokyo Metropolitan Government wants to change all that. And that's why we have been supporting the efforts of these very creative teams and promoting the Tokyo animation industry to join MIFA.

We can open the door to an entire rainbow of Tokyo talent that is not represented in the global animation market. Unique and technically outstanding, they have so much to offer. We do hope you'll take this chance to work with them!
