What is CIC?

CIC is a remote-based consulting firm that provides business-strategy advisory and research services for global markets.

Based in Washington, D.C., the US capital, CIC works closely with experts in the U.S., Japan, and Europe to help clients transform and grow optimally based on the latest global market trends and digital best practices.

All services can be provided in both English and Japanese.

In light of irreversible changes to our society and economy due to the worldwide spread of COVID-19, CIC was founded in 2020 in Washington, D.C., USA by a Japanese business expert with extensive experience overseas to provide remote consulting/advisory services. 

As a business partner of global companies seeking research on the Japanese market, alliances with local companies and expansion of business in Japan, we provide professional services that meet client needs in digital transformation.

What we can do

Based on global project experience and best practices gained in a number of countries such as the USA, Europe and other emerging countries, we offer the best approach and personalized support for clients according to their needs.
