    Innovation Dojo is on again and AJS members and friends are invited to the Dojo's second program finale!

    Innovation Dojo is an initiative launched in 2016 aimed at creating new startups that solve problems facing Australia and Japan. Startups that came out of the first cohort include V-KAIWA, a VR for language learning company and Rumi Tech that provides customer demographics data for brick and mortar retail.

    The next batch of aspiring entrepreneurs will present at the Finale Pitch Night on December 19th.

    Speakers will include Jason Hayes, Partner and leader of the PwC Japan Practice in Asia Pacific, who will give an snapshot on the innovation ecosystem in Japan, and the Innovation Dojo team who will describe Innovation Dojo's recent activities and plans.

    The evening is sponsored by AJS-NSW corporate member PwC who will host us at their offices in Barangaroo.

    Attendance at this event is free by registration. Sign-up at the event page here.

    The event will offer a unique opportunity to experience Japanese calligraphy, or 'shodo'.

    Ren is an artist who specialises in ‘Shodo’, Japanese traditional calligraphy. After holding exhibitions in Tokyo and Osaka, he moved to Sydney in 1996. In 2003 he gained Australian permanent residence as an artist and has continued to practice and teach his art, which has been recognized both by the Japanese Foreign Ministry and in Australia.

    We will have a talk about the history and status of Japanese Calligraphy, a performance by Ren, and a chance to practise calligraphy ourselves.

     More details will follow. In the meantime watch Ren's performance here.
