Announcement of Startup Academia Meetup Vol.1

The “Innovation Design Platform (IdP)” was launched by four universities participating in the Startup Ecosystem Tokyo Consortium (Tokyo Institute of Technology, Keio University, Tokyo Medical and Dental University, and the University of Tokyo), and aims to foster the development of a global startup ecosystem in Tokyo and other regions, together with various external partners and other platforms within the consortium. The Innovation Design Platform (IdP) aims to nurture and foster a global startup ecosystem in Tokyo and other regions.

We will hold a meetup to create an environment where university-launched ventures can be born by strengthening the network of information sharing among related parties in the IdP ecosystem.

In the first meeting, we will invite Mr. Katayose, President and Managing Partner of Tokyo University of Science Innovation Capital Corporation, which is the VC of Tokyo University of Science, and has developed the number of university-launched ventures into the No.1 private university-launched ventures. We will hold a study session on the support system for academic entrepreneurs and mentoring.

This is a very valuable opportunity for all people involved in university-launched ventures, academic entrepreneurs, VCs, people in the private sector who are planning or practicing collaboration with university-launched ventures, and CVCs to attend this valuable study session with Mr. Katayose, a professional in the field of academic entrepreneurship.
