Ridilover Co., Ltd. was established in 2009 with the philosophy of "breaking down society's apathy" and later became a corporation. Currently, in addition to running an educational travel business and corporate training business that takes junior high and high school students and business people to the sites of social issues, we are also involved in business development with private companies to solve social issues, and policy planning projects with ministries and local governments. In the 14 years since our establishment, we have taken advantage of the fact that we have dealt with more than 400 types of social issue themes, and by leveraging our experience in nurturing social entrepreneurs and working with impact investment funds, we will create startups that solve social issues.

Initiative details

This project aims for a Tokyo where “social entrepreneurship” and “startup creation” are commonplace in the careers of science undergraduate and graduate students after graduation. Targeting science students with technical or specialized fields, we provide a program that provides comprehensive support for business construction, demonstration, and financing through on-site observation of social issues. As a top runner on social issues, we have a network and relationships with leading businesspeople and investors. We will use our networks and relationships to conduct business demonstrations in Tokyo, a microcosm of Japan, and assist in the creation of businesses that utilize technology and research that have the potential for overseas expansion. We welcome applications from university students, graduate students, and technical college students who are interested in solving social issues using technology and research. Let’s work together to create a business that spreads around the world from the field of social issues.
