This initiative sets a vision of “Let’s create, go beyond.” It is a problem-solving type accelerator program.
(1) Utilization of cutting-edge technology from around the world In addition to domestic startups, we are promoting the domestic deployment of overseas technologies that are leading in
decarbonization, construction, urban development, etc. We will work extensively with overseas bases of Shimizu Corporation and the ReGACY Innovation Group, as well as with overseas VCs.
(2) Support until social implementation
In order to realize the social implementation of the project, we are building a promotion system in which members with a high awareness of issues from each department participate so that Shimizu Corporation’s wide variety of assets can be used at an early stage. In addition, we can accelerate growth by utilizing PoC budget contributions and CVC investments.
(3) Cross-industry initiatives
Co-creation with large companies and local governments in all industries is essential to solving social issues. We will make full use of Shimizu Corporation’s network of customers and partner companies to create projects across industries.
In addition, we have secured a place to exhibit at the event “City Tech.Tokyo” planned by the Tokyo Metropolitan Government as a DemoDay, which is a presentation of the results of the selected companies, and we will promote PR for a large number of participants in Japan and overseas. We have the opportunity.
This initiative will accept applications from participating startup companies from November 14th to December 16th, and plan and verify co-creation ideas with selected companies during the program period until March 2023. After that, we will develop into a full-fledged collaboration such as joint commercialization and social
implementation. While utilizing Shimizu Corporation’s facilities and infrastructure as a demonstration area, we will lead the
next-generation construction industry and solve social issues through solutions that fuse the advanced services and technologies of startups.
