HACARUS Wins The Kyoto Wisdom Entrepreneurship Award 2023

The ‘Kyoto Wisdom Entrepreneurship Award 2023’ is an entrepreneurship discovery project organized by the Kyoto Chamber of Commerce and Industry.

It aims to recognize entrepreneurs, startups, and others who tackle social issues such as energy, environment, food, health, and education through innovative approaches and groundbreaking methods. It was established with the purpose of discovering and nurturing entrepreneurs who will contribute to the future Kyoto economy, and many companies participate as supporters.

“Since our foundation, HACARUS has been exploring the concept of ‘measurement’ (the origin of our company name, HAKARU in Japanese) in various industrial fields. We aim to transform the data obtained through our “measurements” into high-value assets using cutting-edge technologies like AI, and contribute to society. We are deeply honored to receive this award, which recognizes the achievements of our efforts, and it will further propel our future activities. As a recipient of the ‘Kyoto Wisdom Entrepreneurship Award,’ we will fulfill our responsibilities and continue to provide value to a wider audience. We sincerely appreciate your ongoing support and cooperation. Thank you very much.” said Kenshin Fujiwara, CEO and founder of HACARUS

In this award, products such as the AI-powered application ‘HACARUS Workplace Safety for KY,’ which supports KY (Hazard Anticipation) activities in industries such as construction and manufacturing, the AI visual inspection system ‘HACARUS Check,’ and the diagnostic support AI platform ‘HACARUS MD’ were highly evaluated. As part of the award, the recipients will receive grant funding and matching support to accelerate the development and expansion of these products and services, aiming to further expand their impact in Kyoto and the world.
