Universal Materials Incubator Co., Ltd. (UMI) was established in October 2015 based on the vision of “Strengthening Japan’s technological capabilities by fostering outstanding material and chemical companies, and cultivating an industry structure that can compete in the global arena.” Our goal is to advance outstanding technologies and businesses at Japanese companies and academic institutions that will lay the foundations for future industry, and to foster the human resources essential to those activities, in order to establish a platform for creating new business in these industries.
UMI 1 Limited Partnership, which recently began operations, is the first step in building this platform. The path to success will by no means be an easy one; this success can only be achieved with the cooperation of many partners in the material and chemical industries, and in other fields as well. Through the establishment and management of this fund, and with your invaluable assistance, we hope to contribute to growth and innovations in the Japanese material and chemical industries.
