Philosophy

Contribute to eliminate poverty in the world by spurring innovative and sustainable social development through business promotion

Countries in Asia Pacific, Africa and Latin America have been experiencing explosive economic growth in the spread of globalization and the IT technologies these days. On the other hand, these countries have a variety of social issues such as poverty, regional disparities and environmental destruction, and the degree of the issues has become increasingly serious in some countries.

We try to solve these issues by promoting the introduction of technologies and services of Japanese companies that can potentially contribute to the solution of the issues, and connecting them to the government organizations and companies on the ground. We then support the companies to realize further innovation of their technologies and services in the way that meets the challenges of the countries and regions.

In addition, we also undertake the business development along with the companies, progress together, and will play a role in the realization of sustainable social development.

We, as the innovator that did not exist in the international development industry, will contribute to the innovative solutions for various social issues, in cooperation with donor agencies, companies, NGOs, private foundations, and people involved in those issues in and outside of the developing countries.

Service

Kenndo Management

Kenndo Management Kenndo Management does not offer consulting service such as academic advice. We support SMEs (Small and Medium Sized Enterprises) as if their business is a part of our business. We do not conduct only consulting work such as market survey and proposal of sales approach, instead, we think and discuss about thoroughly how clients' products are sold in overseas markets, and how their products solve social issues on the ground at the same. To achieve the both sides of purpose, we offer our service, called “Management Service”.

    To understand the attractiveness of companies' products

    We can not support you with overseas expansion projects without understanding the attractiveness of companies' products. Before conducting business development together, we observe the manufacturing site (or service delivery site), study the product, and face the product with the feeling that we have become your employee.
