Our goal is to help entrepreneurs develop real projects that are grounded in an international outlook and with international ambitions. All disciplines are welcome! Projects with a social benefit or intention are preferred. The KEIO EDGE Global Innovator Program is grounded in Design Thinking, an approach to managing innovation that is focused on intense collaboration and creative idea development. Participants are asked to clearly define a project, and to organize a group of collaborators and mentors both in Japan and overseas that will help them take the next step in their journey to create a new product or service. Successful applicants to the program will be given financial and technical support and will be aided in carrying out their project. The outcome of these efforts is to be shared at the semi-annual Global Innovation Forum in the form of a presentation and discussion.
