Summary

Promoting business start-ups has been regarded as an important policy issue in Japan since more than 20 years. Japanese government has started in 2014 a new promotion policy of acknowledging and supporting municipalities’ program proposals for local start-up support based on local public-private partnerships. When the proposals are acknowledged, municipality governments, local private agencies, and potential entrepreneurs can obtain financial support from the central government. We empirically estimate the causal effect of this new policy on local start-up ratio using regional panel data of all municipalities for five periods from 2001 to 2016, and find positive and significant (though modest) effect of this policy, especially for regions that look unfavorable for start-ups.
