2nd Seminar for the Future of Design x Business x Entrepreneurship: "Traditional Industry x Innovation"

November 21st, 2019

At the Robert Fan/Entrepreneurship Center (Kyushu University, Kyushu University Business School, Kyushu University Faculty of Design), we will hold the Second Seminar for the Future of Design x Business x Entrepreneurship, “Traditional Industry x Innovation”.

We will hold a special seminar with limited places available, to which we have invited Mr. Rika Yajima, who has created various businesses with craftsmen from all over Japan in order to create means to connect tradition to the next generation. In this seminar, Mr. Yajima will talk about his thoughts as an entrepreneur in regards to “half-a-step-ahead management that benefits everyone” for venture companies, “enrichment which can bring economic and social benefits”, and “ways of thinking about work that can unite living and working”. He will also talk about the future of traditional industries, which face issues in being passed down to the next generation in relation to themes such as successors, materials and tools, even while their craftsmanship and elaborate beauty receive global praise. While listening to valuable stories that can only be heard here, you can learn the secrets of how “Design x Business x Entrepreneurship” creates innovation.

The seminar is open to all who are interested, and we look forward to meeting you.

If you wish to join us, please register in advance here.
