“Start With Disruption” - Join R4D’s First Event on 5/21!

May 17, 2018

On May 21st, Mercari’s research and development team, R4D, will be hosting our very first event in our offices on the 18th floor of the Roppongi Hills Mori Tower.

The Theme: “Start With Disruption”

Here at R4D, our research and development goes beyond that of a typical “R&D” group. Our name intentionally uses the number 4, because–in addition to Development–we also work on Design, Deployment using technology of all kinds, and Disruption aiming to destroy existing systems.

At this event, we’ll be discussing how to “disrupt the old and make way for the new”. Specifically, we’ll be asking the question: “what needs to be done to disrupt the conventional idea of ‘business’ and create a more convenient society?” Participants will work with researchers and specialists in various technological fields to delve into this topic.

If You’re Interested in Cutting-edge Technology, This Event is For You

This event is open to anyone interested in the newest technology, regardless of past experience. Whether you’re in charge of new business opportunities at an established company, or you’re an engineer/student thinking of starting your own business, we hope you’ll be able to attend.

There will be a reception after the main event with light food and drinks, so please feel free to stay and chat if you have the time.
