NTT DATA has earned a reputation for supporting a culture of innovation and a strong commitment to client success. With our clients’ trust in us as an innovation partner, our Open Innovation Contest pushes the boundaries of possibilities for technology and business.And once again, we invite start-up companies with great ideas to enter Open Innovation 10. Our experts will provide counsel, connections and important introductions to the winning companies. Along with a chance to pitch during the Grand Finale in Tokyo 2020, finalists also have a chance to win $100,000.

Launched in 2014, NTT DATA has hosted 10 global contests that uncover disruptive ideas and innovations that have true potential to change the world. Our contest winners earn an opportunity to see their idea come to life through our networks and resources. We’ve partnered with winning startups to make internet banking more convenient, explored the use of AI and blockchain technology for social change and supported AI-based solutions that understand natural human gestures and facial recognition. We can’t wait to see this year’s submissions.
