On Oct 3rd, Professors Yoshi Fujikawa and Emi Osono's Digital Disruption class, titled "Sharing Economy: Crowdfunding and Crowdsourcing", welcomed Mr. Kohei Nishiyama, Founder & CEO, CUUSOO SYSTEM, Co., Ltd., as a guest speaker. The session was the first of five guest speaker session series planned in the course. We will hold guest speakers from various industry sectors and technology fields.
In the session, students discussed what it takes to manage crowdfunding/sourcing platforms through discussion with the very person who developed "LEGO CUUSOO" (which was later sold to LEGO and it is now run as "LEGO IDEAS"), "CUUSOO MUJI" (a joint project with MUJI), and other crowd-based open innovation platforms.
