About Us

In March, we launched Connect by CM—a free digital marketplace platform to support local businesses economically hit the hardest by Covid-19, as an extension of the Custom Media website. Constantly innovating and adding new features by listening to our Members and Partners, the platform quickly grew beyond its earlier purpose. Along the way, we were named the overall winner in the Best Corporate Social Responsibility category at the UK-based 2020 Best Business Awards in September.

As we continue to innovate and deliver a more rewarding experience for our community, we decided that it was time the platform had a dedicated presence with its own unique brand identity:


Great offers and experiences

GoConnect is dedicated to being a hub for helping local businesses and connecting them with consumers throughout Japan. We also focus on fostering a thriving online community by sharing inspiring and insightful stories from our Partners, keeping you up to speed with informative webinars, and connecting you with dedicated NPOs. Members can rely on GoConnect to find new offers for services, products and experiences.

We believe our tagline explains exactly what GoConnect is all about. We’re here to give our Members the opportunity to find great offers for a wide variety of products and services and enjoy amazing experiences—from fascinating classes to traveling around the country. So whether you’re finding an unbeatable deal at an online store, broadening your horizons by trying something new, or reading stories about our Partners, we hope that GoConnect serves as your go-to platform for enriching your life in Japan.
