STARTUP STUDIO by Creww is an incubation program for individuals who can realize their businesses "without leaving their day jobs".
In approximately six months, we aim to gather associates, develop the product, and verify the market, before transferring the product to an operating company.
Operating companies can reduce new business risk by committing resources to new "business saplings," and project teams can gain 0 to 1 experience and a contingency fee for the distribution of the transfer price.

Twenty-six projects were selected this year, and founders with a passion to launch their businesses gathered together. One of the most important elements in launching a project is "team formation. In order to gather team members, founders of selected teams pitched their ideas online for four days.

RE:medy] Creating a world where everyone can find a satisfying treatment.

Founder : Takanari Okegawa
Engaged in advertising sales at an IT business company. Experienced in drafting and verifying new business proposals in an in-house new business development contest. As a side job, he is the manager of the corporate planning office of an oyster farm that produces "oysters that can be eaten raw all year round.

Due to the problem of asymmetric medical information between doctors and patients, there are cases in which patients are unable to determine whether the current treatment is optimal, and are left fighting the disease with a mental burden. It is a lonely and painful path, just like groping your way through a dark cave. We want to shine a "light" on this path.

|Social Issues to be solved

Unable to determine if current treatment is the best: Patients lack medical knowledge compared to physicians.
 Patients who "distrusted" their doctors and the results of their medical examinations were about 761 TP3T.

Very few people have access to a second opinion.
 Only 4% of hospitals have an outpatient service dedicated to second opinions.
 Even hospitals that provide some kind of contact point related to second opinions 34%.

| RE:medy's Business

Due to the problem of asymmetric medical information between doctors and patients, there are many cases in which patients are unable to determine whether the current treatment is optimal and are left fighting the disease with mental strain. For this reason, second opinions are recommended, but few people use them because "it is impossible to choose a doctor," "a visit to the hospital is required," and "the cost of diagnosis is unclear. To address this issue, we have a vision to "create a world where everyone can find a satisfactory treatment" and we would like to create a service where second opinions can be completed online.

Main Functions
Search for physicians (profiles, patient evaluation data, and word-of-mouth)
Request a second opinion consultation with a physician
Online report consultation
Second Opinion Stories and Bulletin Board
Search and reservation function for hospitals and clinics

Freeeat] Free valuable surplus food through advertising.

Founder : Ryo Furushima
After working in management at an entertainment agency, she worked in public relations and marketing at an IT company. Although this project is completely unrelated to his main job and he has no experience in startups, he is willing to take on this challenge with solid enthusiasm.

From my original experience in the past, I have been shocked and frustrated by the reality of "food loss," the large amount of food wasted every day in restaurants and workplaces. With sustainable values becoming a major trend these days, I launched freeeat to solve this problem.

This service reduces food waste generated by convenience stores and other retailers. By posting advertisements on this service, companies will enable general consumers who view the advertisements to obtain free products that are about to expire from retail stores. We will also conduct a demonstration experiment to create a 3-sided platform that solves the problem of reduced sales and losses on the store side.

|Social Issues to be solved

Sellers: lost opportunities and wasted costs due to large amounts of food waste
Consumers: Economic hurdle of paying for food out of disposable income
Companies placing advertisements: Difficult to reach low-income groups

|Freeeat Business

Through this project, we will develop an application from scratch. We will also use the developed prototype to promote the project, with the aim of conducting demonstration tests in actual stores. We would like to conduct a demonstration experiment to realize the creation of a 3-sided platform: businesses that post advertisements to users, users who can obtain surplus products for free by viewing the advertisements, and retailers that can reduce the disposal of surplus inventory and solve the problem of lost sales and losses.

We are looking for people like this

We would like to team up with people who are highly passionate about the major social issue of food loss and have a similar temperature of awareness of the problem. We are looking forward to receiving applications from people who are willing to share their opinions and work together. In addition to core members (business architects, engineers, etc.), we are also looking for a wide range of supporters. We would like you to help us promote the project together in various ways, such as spreading the word on SNS, conducting questionnaires during market testing, and monitoring the application!

CoFIND] 0 to 1 specialized business matching SNS for those who take a new step forward.

Founder : Shouou Inoue
After graduating from the graduate school of Waseda University, he worked in research and development of robots at a major company, and has experience in launching a web-based startup.

People get used to their current jobs and talk about "wanting to start something new. However, I believe it is very difficult to take the "first step," to figure out what to start, with whom, where, and how to start. We want to create a service that encourages them to do so, so that the enthusiasm that exists out there is not wasted.

|Social Issues to be solved

I have a passion for entrepreneurship and new businesses, but I need to make it happen.
. "No skills."
. "I'm out of ideas."
... "I don't have any friends."
I don't know where to start.

|CoFIND's Business

We will connect people who have the enthusiasm to try entrepreneurship or new businesses, but "lack the skills," "ideas," or "friends" to make it happen, and match them with organizations that wish to open innovation to realize services that will enable "individuals" to create something new and better.

(1) Recommending people and projects according to their profiles
(2) Even if you don't have a clear idea, you can easily start at the wall-hanging level.
(3) Intuitive UI for efficient search of many projects

(1) User matching
When you think "I want to do something," it is not so easy to come up with an idea if you are thinking alone. However, talking with someone who is thinking "I want to do something" in the same direction. CoFIND uses a unique recommendation engine to efficiently match you with others who share your goals.

(2) Project Listing
Once we have an idea, we want to give it shape. However, colleagues are not always present in the vision. Also, a business cannot be formed by one position. Post your idea as a project and find colleagues who share your vision. This service is also available for applicants.

(iii) Project Launch
I'd love to do something together!" CoFIND can put you on a clear path toward an accelerator or startup support program while the enthusiasm is still there. Once you find your friends, you can start shaping your idea on the side before the heat dies down.

Founder : Kotaro Machida
He is in charge of finance and business investment for a heavyweight company. Hobbies are futsal and soccer. Struggles with business development on a daily basis.

If I work hard here, can I really become the person I want to be?
No one could answer this question quantitatively and qualitatively. Society needs solid information that pushes people who have the desire to take on the challenge of becoming the person they want to be, with an eye toward their career after changing jobs.

In today's world of endless career choices, many people change jobs with an eye toward their post-employment careers. For those who are challenged with drawing up their careers, we provide a database search system that shows how much money they have earned and what kind of career they have drawn up, including those who joined the company and those who continue to work there and those who subsequently went to other companies.

|Social Issues to be solved

- I changed jobs to become the person I wanted to be, but later realized that I had made a choice that would take me far away.
- I was stuck between career-oriented and stability-oriented and could not take a step forward.

Founder : Yoshiyuki Ogasawara

I want to fill the few moments that parents and children can spend together with more smiles.

In a lifetime, parents and children spend only nine years in close proximity.
Parents, on the other hand, are frustrated between housework, childcare, and work, and suffer from daily frustrations and regrets when they lash out at their children. We want to solve this problem and "create happy time for parents and children. That is our passion for this business.
