encognize powers Creatoyo 2022 Business Innovation Award
In the first week of February 2022, the Global Innovation Studies Department of Toyo University in Japan has successfully delivered their annual flagship event, Creatoyo.
As every year, the event aimed at promoting creativity and innovation by gathering artists, academics, associations and business professionals and have them work in close collaboration with groups of students.
Based on the positive feedback received for the first Business Innovation Award delivered in 2021, encognize was invited to design and power the 2nd edition of the Creatoyo Business Innovation Award in a renewed online format.
This year, 3 teams of students have worked on creating a business concept and its related presentation, answering the question: "2025 - Impact Innovation: What societal problem will you solve as a for profit business entrepreneur?"
This theme directly aligns with encognize commitment to support the development of responsible X-Tech digital businesses.
For a rich experience, the 3 teams were coached by 3 startup founders coming each from different backgrounds and working on diverse social innovation-related solutions:
To help the 3 teams identify the type of impact they wanted to generate with their business, they were recommended to get inspired by one or several goals from the SDG framework.
As a result, each team has decided to address a specific challenge in different areas:
Each Team presentation was evaluated by a jury composed of Toyo University professors, the 3 coaches, encognize CEO and the students themselves based on 5 criteria:
