We use many financial services in our day-to-day life, using e-money to take trains, withdrawing money from ATMs at convenience stores, or taking out life or auto insurance. If you have interests in investing, you may also be investing in stocks or investment trust funds.

Have you ever felt that it would be even better if it was just a little more convenient, or that?

In addition, financial institutions that provide their respective financial services are constantly striving to improve their services and streamline their operations.

For the “Financial Innovation Category”, Tokyo residents and businesses are invited to submit any dissatisfaction they feel, or requests they have regarding the BtoB or BtoC services in Tokyo, or services they wish. Tokyo Metropolitan Government will choose the theme to be resolved from these applications, and ask domestic and foreign financial companies offering relevant solutions to apply for.

From the applicants, the best three examples will be chosen by 2 judging processes and awarded in February 2022. The first, second and third prize winner receive 10M JPY, 5M JPY, 3M JPY, respectively.
