About the Play Engineering Project

Since Uzabase’s founding in 2008, we have always aimed to combine the power of people and technology in a bid to create must-have business intelligence services. 

One of our seven material issues is “Becoming a technology company (Establish a new, technology-driven business model for the company).” As a technology company, we want to change the way business professionals work by freeing them from labor-intensive tasks and allowing them to do more creative work instead. This is a vision that we would also like to embody ourselves.

With this vision in mind, Uzabase launched its Play Engineering project in April 2022, aiming to awaken a world of play in business with the power of engineering. 

Going forward, Uzabase will continue offering its support system that allows members of various professions to learn engineering in a fun way, as well as promoting the Play Engineering for Kids project. Through these initiatives, we will aim to spark interest in IT and business and create opportunities to maximize the potential of children—leaders of the future.
