from Educational Sessions to growing Business partnerships
From direct and indirect contributions to the delivery of educational sessions as part of encognize .SYNAPTIK services to expending our support to innovative startups entering the Japanese market under encognize .FASTFORWARD services, the first quarter of 2020 has been very active for our Japan X-tech Force consultants.
filling collaboration gaps between corporations and startups
At encognize, we are convinced that every one, regardless of age, gender, citizenship... can learn from others and contribute to solve problems from the "real world" by sharing openly and discussing constructively their respective ideas and perspectives.
When it comes to innovation or entrepreneurship, one of the most obvious challenges we observe is how difficult it can be for startup and entrepreneurs to successfully collaborate with large corporations.
Therefore, we felt very privileged to engage with students from Toyo University during the Creatoyo week, a five-day program organized by the Department of Global Innovation Studies around one core theme: "understand creativity in a global context", and discuss how to solve the collaboration gaps between large corporations and smaller, emerging, innovative companies.
Sharing experiences, building the Future...
Our encognize team has maintained a high pace of activities throughout the last quarter of 2019, keeping at its heart the sharing of experiences.
Workshops, presentations, luncheon have been conducted with a wide range of participants to the FinTech industry and to the broader Innovation ecosystem, be they startups, financial institutions, regulators or students.
Of course, our encognize team has also continued to focus on ensuring strong business progresses for our portfolio of innovating Tech companies through the identification of new projects, PoC, business partners or investors.
