To develop successful innovation that could provide hallo economy impact, a systematic strategy development is needed with the support of strong partnership between ABCG and banks. This study uses qualitative approach (direct observation) by taking a case study of Technology Advanced Metropolitan Area (TAMA) in Japan who has successfully developed Greater Tokyo Initiative (GTI). Result of this study shows that to develop a successful cluster, there is a need of systematic cluster strategy with the help of ABCG and bank partnership.

TAMA is a comprehensive example of ABCG collaboration that not only develop regional network so that some projects can run smoothly but also create collaboration with other cluster in Japan and in the world to contribute to global innovations to strengthen their network.
