Innovation Lighthouse Japan business collaboration and innovation platform aims to bring together corporations, startups, scaleups, research institutes and centers, stakeholders and the pioneers of the Japanese corporate world and European innovation movement willing to address global issues. We create an innovation network and community that is expected to bring new values to the world and help to empower Japan’s innovation ecosystem. 

We organize a variety of corporate- startup collaboration programs that enable positive social transformation through the power of creativity, entrepreneurship and disruptive technologies.

 

We run personalized programs, workshops, innovation accelerator programs and pitching contests.

We work to ensure that Japanese corporate leaders reach desirable open innovation partners and together make a real change in society. We see our campaigns as collective efforts and tools for connecting and building a well-connected, stronger, and global innovation community.

Our cross-cultural trainings and coaching sessions help individuals, teams, departments and public and private organizations to gain the right understanding of values and cultural context in which business decisions are made.

Our trainings programs provide necessary foundation and tools to develop  skills to successfully face challenges when collaborating with multinational teams. We offer programs for Japanese and non-Japanese clients as individual consultations, webinars or in-class sessions.
