Welcome to the new and improved website for Innovation Dojo Japan!

We are really excited to share with you our new team, projects and capabilities. Since launching Innovation Dojo in Sydney, Australia in 2016 so much has happened. So much has happened globally for innovation and startups, especially in Japan where we are growing our business, and Australia where we started about 7 years ago!

Our team is on a serious and ambitious mission to create and nurture the world's most diverse pipeline of tech and talent for all of our futures. We can only do this with our partners and we will only do it in a way that keeps the startup founders at the centre of our program and service design. They are why we exist.

Mission Vision Value

We have developed from being an entrepreneurship program and startup creation program, into an innovation firm with capabilities across education, ecosystem management and startup incubation and business development and capital raising support.

In the last 12 months, our team has supported over 250 startups

In the last 12 months, our team has supported over 250 startups including Japanese and international startups looking to enter Japan.

Thank you to our collaborators, partners and the amazing startups we work with - we couldn't do it without you and we look forward to working with you on even more exciting projects this year!

So please check out our new website - and if you have any questions or just want to say hi, we cannot wait to hear from you!
