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.
Pushing RegTech / FinTech innovation boundaries further...
Alternative Credit Scoring based on psychometric evaluation (AdviceRobo), 3FA solution through card-embedded fingerprint reader combined with digital wallet (Unikeys), Digital-Identity-as-a-Service based on distributed platform (Pikcio), Financial Industry- specific translation engine (Lingua Custodia) are as many innovative solutions that our encognize GK team was proud to promote between April and September 2019.
Beyond the active search of business partners ready to explore these innovative solutions in Japan, our team has also conducted focused seminar and had the honor to be invited to renowned industry events.
