Innovation is not something that occurs one day by chance. At the Innovation Network for Co-creating the Future (INCF), we define innovation to be a process or organizational activity that uses innovative technologies to resolve or reform societal issues.
At present, we set six societal issues to resolve: "Wellness", "Water & Food", "Energy & Environment", "Mobility",
"Disaster Prevention" and "Education & Human Resources".
INCF will regularly update to improve the “Resolving Societal Issues Through Innovation --- Listings of Societal Issues” to share societal issues of home and abroad including their possible impacts.
INCF will host “Seminars on societal issues” for its members to share and update information on the societal issues, their priority and possible solutions through innovation and business.
INCF will conduct a “Business Acceleration Program” for entrepreneurs and researchers home and abroad. The winners will continue to receive support through follow up services including introduction to possible business partners.
Corporate Members A may initiate BAP equivalent competitions focusing on their own specific interest. In such case, variety of assisting services will be provided by the INCF secretariat (fee will be charged.)
BAP winners will be given opportunities to make presentations to Corporate Members A and B in search of business matching and co-creating business plan.
Members are invited to participate in SIGs where corporations, government and academia, along with entrepreneurs or start-ups have discussions to explore possible solutions or business ideas of common interest.
WGs will discuss and design technical and business models in detail in order to materialize the business idea.
Proposed technology and business model will be tested and validated (proof of concept) through collaboration among members or through participation in national-or local government projects.
Members B start-ups are offered consultation service including introduction to INCF network entities home and abroad, financing, IPO, and M&A etc. for their business expansion.
INCF will attempt to materialize resolution of societal issues through implementation of INCF originated business ideas.
