GVH#5 has a multi-faceted support system with specialists in various fields, dedicated staff, and an available community.

GVH#5 is home to a group of specialist startup supporters, which include accounting, tax, and legal expert groups; as well as a group of companies with business know-how built on their first-hand experience. Because these supporters are based in the building, our members can receive ongoing support, and not just a general connection. In addition, Team GVH#5, which manages the facility, takes part in a variety of activities to help build a startup ecosystem in the Kansai area. We have dedicated staff at the facility, who not only connect startups with supporters, but also help introduce connections through external networks as needed. Access to GVH#5 gives you all the resources you need for your startup, from our startup community to our expert support and external networks.
