Aiming to develop a space for new industrial creation and co-creation in Japan and Southeast Asia
Japan is currently at a major OS turning point, with plenty of room for digital transformation of lifestyle infrastructure and industry. On the other hand, the massive population of Southeast Asia is comprised of roughly half younger demographics who are both driving strong economic growth and leading startups which don’t always require traditional infrastructure and assets, instead creating a completely new structure of industry through digital technology.
We aim to develop a global “co-creation” space which allows both parties to utilize their respective knowledge and know-how.
