We currently live in a challenge-driven world. When corporates face a challenge, they either try to solve it internally or hire a consulting firm to do it, which is costly in terms of resources and time. Usually, freelancers, universities or startups have what it takes to solve these challenges, but are not in sync with the corporate's needs: don’t know how to reach them or even what their challenge is. TAIKAI or 大会 (“coopetition” in Japanese) is the act of joining competing forces to cooperate to achieve a greater solution together.
Our vision is to create a future where highly specialized individuals can look for challenge-based opportunities, from different industries. That's where TAIKAI comes in, our open innovation social network acts as the facilitator. We provide the space and the right environment for our innovators to work on challenges posted by companies, present solutions and get paid for it. On the other hand, they can also showcase their work by allowing them to expose to the community their very own innovations or challenges. Can you imagine a world where you could work with NASA one day and with Google the next?
