We established Universal Materials Incubator Co., Ltd. (UMI) 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 contribute to the outstanding technologies and businesses at Japanese companies and academic institutions that will lay the foundations for future industry and to the training of human resources essential to those activities, and to provide a platform for creating new business in these industries.
The establishment of Funds is the first step in building this platform. The path to creating new business will by no means be an easy one; this success can only be achieved with the cooperation and assistance of many partners in the material and chemical industries, and in other fields as well. Through the operation of Funds, and with your invaluable assistance, we hope to contribute to growth and innovations in the Japanese material/chemical industry.
