On April 17, Sharp Corporation held an event inviting its stakeholders to commemorate its 111th anniversary. At the event, Robert Wu, President and CEO of Sharp, announced it will hold Sharp Technology Day on November 11, 2023. Currently, under the slogan “Be a Game Changer”, Sharp is strengthening its own development resources along with accelerating open innovation by working in alliance with global companies and collaborating with startups.

Sharp was founded by Tokuji Hayakawa, an entrepreneur, and inventor who established a metalworking shop in Tokyo 111 years ago on September 15, 1912. Later, he invented the “Ever Ready Sharp Pencil,” a twist-type mechanical pencil that became the origin of the corporate brand.
Ever since, based on its business creed of “Sincerity and Creativity” and its founder’s ideal to “Make products that other companies want to imitate,” Sharp has continued to introduce unique products and solutions including numerous Japan-firsts, industry-firsts, and world-firsts to contribute to the development of society. Sharp sets its target to become a truly global company by developing new areas including creating new businesses from local ideas, providing services close to the community, and developing start-up solutions businesses.
By emphasizing ESG(Environmental, Social, Governance) policy in its management, Sharp will continue to hold sincerity and its unique technology to contribute to society as global standing close by to people.
