Abstract: Silicon Valley’s innovation ecosystem grew to what it is today over the past 60 years. In the process of evolution, “open innovation” was one of the critical elements that enabled Silicon Valley to grow to the hub of new technology and business development, be it hardware, software, or new business model. Many of global companies are seeking ways to expedite their R&D process and new product development through corporate venturing and open innovation, especially with young, emerging companies in Silicon Valley with state-of-the-art technologies. In this seminar, we will review the history of Silicon Valley over the past 60 years. We will then discuss the concept of “Corporate Venturing” and “Open Innovation”, and discuss what role “open innovation” has played in accelerating product development in Silicon Valley. We will further discuss how Japanese corporations can realize more effective R&D and new business development through corporate venturing and open innovation, especially with start-up companies in Silicon Valley.
