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:
Full speed on CRoss-Border Innovation
Who said that the COVID19 pandemic would stop cross-border innovation initiatives?
Certainly not our encognize GK Japan X-Tech Force who has been supporting both inbound and outbound business development initiatives for a large variety of digital tech innovators throughout 2021!
Supporting B2B Startups and scale-ups in FinTech, HealthTech, MedTech, AgriTech, Drones and Photogrammetry platform, Robotics Orchestration platform, EdTech, MarTech, RetailTech, not to mention the co-launch of ELLA, an EdTech microSaaS offering Adaptive Learning-as-a-Service API to eLearning / mLearning designers were all part of our 2021 menu...
And the 2022 menu looks as exciting as 2021, if not more!
Thank you to all our business partners for trusting us this year again in delivering their innovation-related initiatives.
We look forward to further fruitful collaborations on innovation in this year of the Tiger!
