Message from Representative

CEO中村 拓哉

Let's design an exciting future society together.

With the belief "Why not pursue what you truly love to the fullest," Chowa Giken, a venture originating from Hokkaido University, operates daily with this exciting sentiment.

Founded in 2009 by Professor Keiji Suzuki (currently President of Future University Hakodate) and Professor Hidetaka Kawamura (Hokkaido University), Chowa Giken emerged to implement specialized research outcomes from academia into society. What initially started as an activity akin to a university research lab circle has evolved, propelled by the rapid advancement of AI. Today, we tackle high-level corporate challenges and venture into creating new services using cutting-edge academic research.

In tandem with the significant changes of this era, our company enters a new phase, and we are seeking like-minded individuals to join us in our pursuit of the next stage of growth. Given the paradigm shift, there may be unexpected challenges. However, we believe that, together with committed companions, even these challenges can be embraced as opportunities for growth. Let's collaboratively build an environment where each person can unleash their creativity to the fullest, inspire each other, learn, and create new value. Will you join us in crafting an exciting future together? We aspire to create a 'thrilling future' with everyone and eagerly await your applications.
