Innovation Dojo is the bridge between Japan and Australia’s innovation and startup ecosystems and the way big problems shared between these countries will be solved.
Launched in 2016, the program trained 24 young innovators on how to start a startup that could be launched in both countries and we’re proud to say three excellent young companies were born.
You may have heard of the VR for language learning startup V-KAIWA, the Artificial Intelligence driven menu translation app ChewmonGo or Anywhere Technology, a startup combining Outdoor Media, Big Data and IoT.
Our clients so far include top ranked Japanese universities and the Australian government.
We are a special team of startup specialists, corporate innovation leaders and cross-cultural tech wizards, all with a passion of raising opportunities, awareness and collaboration between Australia, Japan and across APAC in the area of innovation and entrepreneurship.
