In fiscal 2018, we are planning to host 2 events: the 8th contest at the end of August in Tokyo, as well as the 9th contest from January to March 2019 in 10 to 15 cities worldwide (to be scheduled).
Moreover, we launched the SDGs Award starting from the 8th contest, aiming to realize solutions to achieve the global commitment: the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). We are actively seeking business proposals to address global challenges.
This is an excellent opportunity to introduce the new social infrastructure, through which we can form the “triple win” business alliance among NTT DATA group, startups and our clients (major corporations), bring more happiness to the world, and alleviate suffering. We look forward to seeing your innovative proposals.
Our motto is, “Let’s change the world together.”
