Innovation Norway Tokyo invites students studying in Japan to a business case-solving competition!

We would like to invite Norwegian students studying in Japan, as well as Japanese students with an interest for Norway, to participate in a business case competition. Through this event, we would like to give you experience in business modeling with real cases provided and presented by companies. We will also introduce you to the business canvas model, a helpful tool for creating and mapping new business ideas. You will be divided into teams, and you will present your innovative and creative solution next day. Perhaps you have the good solution to the challenges these companies face?

The event will be held at the Royal Norwegian embassy in Tokyo, on December 9 and 10.

At the end of the event we will invite you to the famous Noralumni Bonenkai, where you get the chance to meet and connect with more companies and students over food and drink!

Program:

The event will take place over 2 days. It starts Friday afternoon at 17.00 with presentations by the companies before you will be divided into teams and receive a case. You will then have your own work space at the embassy for the rest of the evening and the day after.  Saturday: The solutions to the cases will be presented, and a jury will pick the winner. In the evening we host the Noralumni Bonenkai.

Details will be announced at a later date.

Sign-up:

Norwegian students studying in Japan, as well as Japanese students with an interest for Norway, are eligible to participate. Students from all areas of studies are welcome! It doesn’t matter if you have no prior knowledge of the cases, as long as you are willing to learn and interact.

We ask you to submit at short motivational text where you describe the following:

For both Norwegian and Japanese students:

  • What “career path” you are currently thinking of taking
  • What you can contribute to in the group work; what are your strengths

+ For Norwegians students:

  • How long you have been in Japan
  • What brought you to Japan

+ For Japanese students:

  • If you have studied in Norway, for how long
  • What is the primary interest for Norway and/or studying in Norway

This input will be used in order to divide you into suitable teams and if too many applicants, to select the participants.

For those outside the Tokyo-Area we might be able to cover some of your travel expenses. Please contact us for more information.

Sign-up is now closed.
