We currently live in a challenge driven world. When corporates face a challenge, they’re not agile enough to adapt their structure to solve it. Usually startups and universities have what it takes to solve these challenges, but are not in sync with the corporates needs: don’t know how to reach them, don’t know what their challenge is and sometimes feel that they are competitors.
Taikai or 大会 (coopetition in Japanese) is the act of joining competing forces to cooperate with each other to achieve a greater solution together. Our vision is to create a global online platform where corporates, startups and students can register and collaborate around specific industry challenges. To find the best solutions to each problem at hand, Taikai provides a good matchmaking engine and a set of incentives to keep the community growing and active, while being completely transparent, secure and decentralized.
