Innovation Design Platform (IdP) Opening Event Startup Academia!

<Click here to apply.

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 together with various external partners in the consortium and other platforms, aims to foster the development of a global startup ecosystem in Tokyo and the region. The opening event will commemorate the kick-off of the Innovation Design Platform (IdP), which aims to foster and nurture a global startup ecosystem in Tokyo and other regions.

The event will feature keynote speeches by prominent speakers on the creation of university-launched ventures, introductions of companies that have been selected for the GAP FUND, which provides funding for prototype development and testing to entrepreneurial candidates who aim to commercialize their products on the platform, and other various contents. In addition, we will create an event where people from different fields, such as researchers who are conducting original research at universities and those who aspire to start their own businesses, can gather and interact online, thereby creating new encounters among people from various fields and contributing to the creation of university-launched ventures.
