We invest in ventures that (aim to) commercialize research outcomes derived from Kyoto University. Such research
outcomes include intellectual property, knowhow, and other disruptive ideas.
Further details are provided below:
- The utilization of research outcomes is expected to enhance social value, such as by the creation of new markets and new jobs.
- The business is expected to fulfill social demands and add new value, such as productivity improvement, to the national economy.
- The business is expected to contribute to the improvement of academic research at Kyoto University and eventually at the national level.
- The commercialization of technology (or knowhow) is scheduled to materialize within 5 to 10 years so that we can expect, with a reasonable chance of success, the recovery of investment before the fund matures.
