Mr. Takano is a featured panelist at “ENGINE for the future of Japan”


Mr. Takano was a featured panelist in the "Engine, a meet-up for the future of Japan", a symposium co-organised by the Japan Business Federation, the Ministry of Finance, the Financial Services Agency and the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry. The event took place on the 24th of January.

“It was a pleasant surprise to meet so many other people who also truly want to improve Japan,” Mr. Takano commented. “The areas we are working in are quite different, so our ideas and the issues we focused on were also different, but it was clear we all shared the same ambition and I was very happy about that.”

SMEs, startups and large corporations collaborating together to create innovation, was one of the prominent topics of discussion throughout the event. As a panelist, Mr. Takano pointed out the importance of having an equal relationship between small and large companies as well as the significance of design thinking. Both of these, he explained, are necessary for a win-win relationship that can facilitate innovation.
