Trusted Corporation has identified over 5000 of the most promising startups in Japan and Europe and advanced the global ecosystem by connecting them with major corporations. This is backed by a strong global network of private and public partners. Their partner, Japan Innovation Network (JIN), has worked for over 8 years and successfully supported major Japanese companies in accelerating innovation activities. By supporting the implementation of an Innovation Management System (IMS), JIN has backed these corporations in strengthening their innovation capabilities and enhancing their organizational readiness toward innovation.

As an increasing number of Japanese corporations have already implemented an Innovation Management System (IMS), they are now ready for amplified innovation activities. This is an area that Trusted Corporation has proven to be one of the key players through their leading position in the market of startup identification and extensive support services in open innovation facilitation.

By entering this strategic partnership, JIN and Trusted Corporation intend to connect and leverage their respective networks across different ecosystems for the benefit of innovation-ready large Japanese companies. Enhancing innovation at the organizational level requires firms to be able to continuously monitor their environment to detect opportunities and what will be the businesses of tomorrow. As the awareness of this crucial need has entered the common language of IMS-ready Japanese corporations, JIN and Trusted Corporation will join their efforts in further supporting them in their identification opportunities activities. Each of the organizations is backed by a strong network and having access to a large number of innovation communities. We look forward to working together to introduce Japanese major corporations that have implemented an IMS to startup activities: from investment, collaboration to full acquisition.

‘Accelerate innovation’ with a focus on smart cities is Trusted’s vision and mission — for a world in which we can enjoy innovation becoming reality in our lifetime. Our partnership with Japan Innovation Network will make innovation between Japan and Europe happen, at an even faster pace.
