Our Innovation Practice
Accelerating Innovation
Investment

In order to improve Customer Experience and to maximize the group synergies, we are accelerating our investment in innovation both external and internal.
Externally, we have invested in startups such as CureApp Inc., Oishi kenko Inc. so far, also several VC funds through our corporate venture capital (CVC) and will continue our active investment.
Internally, we have established the Dai-ichi Life Innovation Fund (DLIF) within the business operating budgets. The DLIF provides flexible funding for innovative ideas that would benefit our entire Group companies and support proof-of-concept (POC) experiments.

Collaborating with startups
by leveraging
the global network

In order to accelerate innovation, we are incorporating internal resources, companies, research institutions, accelerators and VCs with diverse ideas and expertise from different industries.
To give an example of our achievement, we have entered into a strategic partnership with a U.S. startup, Neurotrack Technologies, Inc., through an introduction from one of our VC networks. In this partnership, together we are working on Alzheimer’s Disease and Dementia which are rapidly increasing numbers of patients in Japan. We have adopted their "Neurotrack Cognitive Function Test" and providing the service in the Dai-ichi Life Insurance Co., Ltd. "Kenko Daiichi" dementia prevention app.
We will further drive collaboration with worldwide innovative companies to provide high value-added services and contribute in realizing the healthy longevity in the aging society.
