TOWARD INNOVATION NATION

Why JIN matters to you

Japan Innovation Network (JIN) is an accelerator for large and medium-sized companies to spur innovation in companies and overcome the widely held belief that “large companies cannot be innovative”.

JIN was formed in 2013 from the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry (METI) “Frontier HR Research Committee *” to implement the key finding of the need for a “two-layered management”, the systematic approach to manage creativity and productivity in parallel.

Using this methodology, we aim to create 100 innovative companies in Japan and turn Japan into an “INNOVATION NATION”. We tackle these issues via three approaches.

* METI committee to research “how to cultivate innovators inside companies”, chaired by Kunitake Ando, former president of Sony and Executive Director at JIN.
