On the 14th of February, 2013, Mayor of Osaka City declared “Osaka Innovation Vision” to turn Osaka city into the place full of opportunities where people and ideas gather from all over the world, and open to innovation. To pursue this vision, we are promoting innovation creation at Osaka Innovation Hub located in Grand Front Osaka.
We praise challengers who resolve social problems, change the times, and create something new, and support brave challengers with determination to rise up many times. We provide supports through events such as Mono App Hackathon workshop, and Silicon Valley Tour for project creation of those challengers.
We will create global Osaka city with full of self-starters who can plan and network.
