GMO Internet Group set up the system to give shape to partners' new business ideas and business plans.
New business invention project "GMO Edison"
We set up the system to look for partners' ideas and business plans that resolve issues around the world and of our customers based on technology and contribute to the sustainable growth of GMO Internet Group. For ideas and business plans that have been adopted, GMO Edison provides the following support required to turn ideas or business plans into actual services: funds; development resources; knowledge; and staff.
Partners can actually drive the business as a business manager or submit only ideas. For ideas and business plans that have been adopted, the Group has prepared an incentive remuneration.
Partners' ideas may actually turn into services. They may become a business manager or even a General Manager or a President someday. Each partner can challenge himself/herself to suit him/her, and the Group has prepared an environment for partners to show their abilities.
Areas of ideas and business plans
We are looking for businesses utilizing the Internet. Examples are as follows:
- Extension of the existing business
- Completely new area utilizing the Internet
- New services using new technologies
- Ideas that resolve issues of our customers in a short time rather than target long-term growth
Origin of the name "GMO Edison"
"Restlessness and discontent are the first necessities of progress," said Thomas Edison, a father of invention.
We believe the force that creates new values, new services, and new concepts, and enriches and changes the world, is the desire to resolve issues around the world and of our customers.
We wish to unleash a force inside each of our partners, and therefore have named the system "GMO Edison."
