Welcome to IMF

The application has been closed because the capacity has been reached.

◉ In both business and community, human communities are established within a “net of relationships”. However, organizations and societies are now cut off everywhere.

◉ That's why we need things and people to stand in the “between” and repair, regenerate, and recreate a few of the links that have been destroyed, damaged, and lost. The mediator who plays the role of "knowledge between" is called "intermediator". It's the type of people that are hard to see for those who are just looking for “strong leaders” who are trying to stand above or in front of someone.


◉ However, in the process of new demand and the movement of society and history, there are people who mediate different areas, promote "dialogue and collaboration" while fully recognizing each other's differences, and make unprecedented changes. I've been moving. In that sense, a new future has always been born because of Ai.


◉ On the day of the event, we hope that you will be informed of your future role as an “intermediate” through keynotes, cases, and open dialogues, and that you will be able to give further impetus to each person's activities. We would like to invite people who are aiming for new developments beyond the stalemate of each area.
