There are two mechanisms for achieving both sociality and
profitability in social business.
1. A unique method to create a social business (sociality)
Using our unique method of creating a business model that directly solves social problems, the “Social Concept,” we thoroughly organize the current state of the social problem we are addressing, the ideal image of society, and the essential cause, and come up with a business model. .
We have also set a unique index called “social impact” to measure how close we are to solving social issues.
2. Thoroughly create a business plan before starting the business (profitability)
Before starting a business, we always announce our business plan at the “President’s Meeting” where the managers of all 47 businesses gather.
Therefore, by getting feedback from management about the sociality and profitability of the business and brushing it up, we are finishing up a more accurate business model.
Mechanism that creates social businesses one after another “Onokuri Ecosystem”
With the aim of solving as many social issues as possible, we have adopted a unique mechanism called “Onokuri” to create 100 social businesses per year. An ecosystem where you can share funds and know-how and take on challenges without risk.
In 2019, we were awarded the Good Design Award (Business Model Category) and the Company Grand Prize/Special Judges’ Award, as we received high praise for this system that creates entrepreneurs one after another.
