Ricoh, a leading Japanese multinational imaging and electronics company, is hosting a challenge for startups and students. Ricoh Challenge: The Future of the Multifunction-Printer → – invites participants to submit their ideas to remodel the concept of the multi-functional printer and peripheral, both from a traditional and modern perspective.

This competition has three categories to apply:

  • Solutions for a world with paper: Create a solution that harnesses the need for paper in modern industries/fields.

  • Solutions for a paperless world: If not for physical printing, how should printers/scanners evolve to still be relevant in the workplace?

  • Wild Card: Development of innovative solutions/creative ideas to create a potential future partnership with Ricoh, regardless of category.

Don’t miss this opportunity to develop a concept alongside a significant global player and create the future together! Apply now for the chance to pitch your solution to Ricoh executives. The winning startup will potentially receive funding support to develop a Proof of Concept and each team member of the winning student team will be rewarded with a high-end digital compact camera.
