​YECとはYouth Entrepreneur Challenge

の略称であり、OVAL JAPANが新たな試みとして







YEC, Youth Entrepreneur Challenge, is a new attempt of OVAL JAPAN. This is an online English business contest.


The concept: "Spread Your Wings"

Since it is held online, it is possible to develop the skills required for future global leadership regardless of distance or financial problems.



In YEC, students from top-class universities and graduate schools in Japan and abroad form a team of three to do some serious business planning. Business professionals who are active in the front line of business advise the students on business planning and judge the presentation which determines the final ranking.  For students severely limited in their activities due to the corona disaster, we provide them with an experience that allows them to discover a new self through contact with other cultures and to experience collaboration and friendship across national borders. The winning team will receive a cash prize of 100,000 yen.









Held completely online​

100,000 yen in prize money
