We live in an era of rapid change that demands innovation in all areas. What is needed now is a new "overlap" that transcends barriers, as conventional frameworks are no longer applicable.
Marunouchi, a crossroads of people, things, and services, is a town that will support your thoughts and future.
Under the concept of "overlap becomes connection, and connection becomes co-creation," the TMIP Innovation Award will be presented to new businesses originating from large corporations, and there will be programs to discuss the new challenges of global startups and the future of Marunouchi, a place where innovation is born.
After the event, all participants will gather together for a networking session to connect with each other for co-creation.
