About Innovation Leaders Summit (ILS)

The Innovation Leaders Summit (ILS) is Asia’s largest open innovation matching event, which was launched in 2014 under the sponsorship of the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry (METI), with the aim of matching major corporations with startups to create innovative new businesses. In the main new business matching program called “POWER MATCHING,” 105 major corporations and 625 promising startups recommended by 102 domestic and international leading venture capitalists, government agencies, and other organizations participated. Over the course of four days, 2,890 business meetings took place, and the number of collaboration cases in which the major corporations responded that they would like to re-negotiate for collaboration reached 969 cases. With a high-precision matching program where one out of three cases lead to a collaboration opportunity, it is possible to rapidly promote one’s own open innovation initiatives.
