Startup Creativity Challenge

The SCC is an unprecedented encounter of the French and Japanese innovation ecosystems

3rd edition

An immersive trip in the heart of France-Japan innovation

Pitch Contest November 2021

Win the Learning Expedition at Daigoji temple in Kyoto.

Innovation makes humankind evolve

France and Japan have always had a fascination for each other because they share common collective human values.
In spite of this long, fruitful friendship, it is clear that both ecosystems are still strangers to one another, and yet, they are just waiting to interact. It appears necessary to build a bridge between both countries in order to structure and maximize each one's creative potential.
Thus, collaborative projects or French-Japanese hybrid startups may well be launched in a unique environment conducive to sustainable development.

Through webinars and annual meetings held in France and Japan, we:

- Decipher the French and Japanese innovation ecosystems,
- Share our enthusiasm for innovation in France and Japan,
- Support new talents,
- Build up a strong, agile community,
- Generate new forms of collaborations.
