1st November 2018


ADK has launched “SCHEMA,” its first-ever project to support new business development through creative “trans-creation” of technology. URL: schematokyo.com

Today, various technological innovations in AI, Blockchain, VR, genome editing, with the potential to change the world, are emerging and evolving every day. However, in order for these innovations to truly penetrate people’s lives, they need to be properly ‘interpreted’ into business or services. With the wide range of technological resources, along with the power of creativity cultivated in the advertising business, SCHEMA will start off as a new platform to give shape to future businesses.

With the mission of “Accelerating the power to change,” SCHEMA will involve society, enterprises, and startups by collaborating with 4 external partners. The participating partners are: “Plug and Play Japan,” the world’s top global venture capital; “Digital Hollywood University Graduate School,”an accelerator from Silicon Valley with numerous achievements in producing tech-oriented startups; “DMM.make AKIBA,” the hardware startup hub with capability to produce, develop, and verify; and “Hiroo Gakuen Junior High and High school” who have nurtured students with globalperspective and have offered entrepreneurship education.

ADK’s original workshop method “ADK Power Idea Camp” * will also be incorporated. Skilled members with expertise in technology-focused communication, will support co-creation of new businesses that answer to the needs of companies and market issues.

Japan expanded globally through manufacturing expertise, and SCHEMA aims to support the growth of large corporations as well as startups, to once again, reach global success through effective marketing and branding.

<About the Project Name: SCHEMA>
SCHEMA 【skíːmə】: A representation of a plan or theory in the form of an outline or model.
” SCHEMA” was taken from the ancient Greek word for scheme and the Japanese word sukima. The Japanese word sukima means ‘gap.’ Similar to the method of enhancing comprehension by connecting knowledge and filling the ‘gap,’ the SCHEMA platform also aims to fill gaps by creating the missing piece, to enable growth of future business.
