Energetic Atmosphere, Comfortable Space, and Community
CIC Tokyo is committed to fostering a strong community that truly cares about being “Innovation Leaders”. The hallways are intricately designed to encourage unexpected encounters, and the atmosphere is conducive to starting a casual converstation with other CIC members.
A variety of events are held each month in hope to create a community where residents are not only connected through business, but also their personal interests like food, sports, beauty, wellbeing and other activities.
We run a number of events that are attended by CIC members as well as many non-members; some are hosted by CIC, others by residents, and about a dozen are held each month. We believe that a wide variety of participants is key in creating an open and vibrant environment.
CIC Tokyo is designed to be a space where “innovation is around the corner” and “new encounters are effortless”. “Roji-corners (a small sitting area)” are set up in the corridors to ease conversation with anyone you meet, and the corridors are designed to give the passerby a glimpse of the path ahead to encourage them to explore their neigbors.
We aspire to create a space and environment that feels like working in one large company, where people gradually get to know each other and say hi, or get in a casual chat with the staff around the reception area.
At CIC Tokyo, we value DEIB, which stands for Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Belonging, respectively, and are committed to building a diverse community that is not binded by nationality, religion, or gender.
Recognising and sharing social issues amongst related fields and companies, and an environment where you can easily find partners to tackle these together, is crucial in nuturing innovation. CIC Tokyo works with a variety of companies, organizations, and government agencies to build a community specializing in fast-growing business fields, and to support startup innovation from a variety of perspectives.
Building an "Innovation Culture"
CIC is dedicated to fostering an “Innovation Culture.”
The term “Innovation Culture” refers to a culture that promotes innovation and creativity, and at CIC, we are actively working to create such a culture. We operate an innovation campus where various key players come together to support the growth of startups. CIC Tokyo, as the first Asian base, is a shared office space that houses not only startups but also investors, venture capitalists (VCs), large corporations, local governments, and administrations, all of whom support these startups.
Furthermore, at CIC, we place great emphasis on building a strong “Community” that connects residents and various businesses in the spotlight. While CIC Tokyo takes the lead in promoting activities, each company and individual participating in the community actively contributes to its vitality. Our ultimate goal is to create an active community that continues to generate new possibilities.
By having multiple players and supporters actively involved and complementing each other’s strengths in this culture and community, even challenging innovations that might be difficult for a single company become achievable. We believe that this approach will not only benefit startups within the country but also lead to the birth of successful startups that can make a global impact.
