​Metaverse accelerates innovation

With the global expansion of the new coronavirus, the global economy is entering an era in which the future is completely uncertain. What is required in such an era is the ability to be aware of one's physical sensations, make appropriate decisions, and act on that basis.

They are "concentration" that concentrates on the task in front of you, "charity" that brings the team together while understanding the hearts and emotions of the team members, and the optimal consciousness by noticing your own physical voice. It is "decision power" to make decisions, "resilience" that does not break even in a stressful environment, and "creativity" that can create new things from scratch.

At zenschoolVR, we plan new businesses in the special environment of Metaverse and engage in deep dialogue to strengthen their mental abilities and provide an environment for creating new businesses. (VR headset is provided as standard by rental and we will provide advance VR training. )


We will perform zenschool VR using the VR workspace provided by Spatial .


In the VR workspace provided by Spatial , we will have a deep dialogue while surrounding the bonfire.

Overwhelming self-disclosure power brought about by Metaverse (VR)

Dialogue using Metaverse ( VR) eliminates the need to expose one's face and facial expressions, resulting in overwhelming self-disclosure. While self-disclosure is being made, we will create a space where we can talk about what we want to say in a space where we keep our confidentiality obligations.

​ In addition, while a flat online conference is easily affected by the surrounding environment where the conference is held, the immersive feeling brought about by the three-dimensional space using VR technology brings a high concentration to individual "dialogue". As a result, it produces emergence created from "dialogue".

Based on academic research on metaverse (VR) and consciousness change

With reference to academic research * at Waseda University and Montreal University, where Metaverse (VR) is said to bring about a change in consciousness, zenschool in virtual reality is not an alternative to real zenschool, but a service that can provide new value. Was born. We have developed zenschool VR to create the kind of business needed in New Normal.

As a result of our dialogue experiment using VR, we are convinced that dialogue in VR space can realize the deepening of dialogue that the immersive feeling is unprecedented, and that it can provide value as good as the actual zenschool. We have provided zenschool VR.

Thoughts on holding zenschool VR

Due to the state of emergency, zenschool, which requires dialogue in a close space, was forced to refrain from doing so, but as a result of repeated thoughts about the new normal in the after-corona era, the dialogue in a close space really became a face. Can it be achieved without face-to-face contact? I asked myself.
While searching for something with the current technology, I tried zoom, an online tool, but the dialogue did not deepen, and it would be possible to hold it only in an environment where face-to-face dialogue can be done realistically. Is it? When I was wondering, I came across Metaverse (VR: Virtual Reality).
We were convinced that the dialogue in the Metaverse space would provide an unprecedented depth of dialogue, and that we would be able to provide as much value as the actual zenschool, and we came to provide zenschool VR. Zenschool in virtual reality was born as a service that can provide new value, not as an alternative to real zenschool. Join zenschoolVR to create the kind of business you need in New Normal.
Until now, business has been a model of competing and competing for market share, but in the era of Reiwa, when the world situation changes drastically such as environmental problems, pandemics and wars, instead of competing, we should support and cooperate with each other. There is a global need for business thinking based on Japanese values.
In times of turmoil, business models that accumulate left-brain logic are reaching their limits. It is time to cherish the values that have existed since ancient times in Japan and regain the ideal way of coexistence and co-prosperity business globally.

Developed over a decade to create endogenous motivational innovators like Steve Jobs
True Innovation® Theory-based program

This program was born out of a series of trial and error to uncover the intrinsic motives within an individual through mindfulness meditation, thorough self-disclosure, and deep dialogue for nine years from 2011. , It is operated based on the original innovation theory "True Innovation®" theory.
Through thorough self-disclosure, we will hold a reflecting talk in a place of absolute psychological safety. After that, we take out the product concept based on the intrinsic motivation, make a business plan, make a prototype and realize it. By following up on the extracted concept through a dialogue with us, we will implement the organization and promote commercialization within the business entity of the company.

Post-lecture 2 hours
Lectures on media strategy, crowdfunding, and marketing to realize the ideas taken out will be given for about 2 hours within a week. Then, I will give an overview of the presentation materials for the presentation about one month later.



The presentation time of the presentation using zoom is 10 minutes + Q & A 10 minutes. Unlike a normal business plan contest, you can gather people who sympathize with the business on the spot, do team building, and take "temporary orders" from participants for products and services that you are immediately interested in on the spot. We have prepared a mechanism like this.
In addition, we ask all participants to sign a confidentiality oath so that their intellectual property will not be leaked to the outside.

follow up

During this follow-up period, some graduates can significantly pivot their business or earn a budget to grow significantly.
In the actual commercialization, we also have you appear in owned media operated by our company as promotion support.
Follow-up will start immediately after the recital. For the next 6 months, we will follow up on the progress of the business online for about 1 hour every month using zoom.
