Running for the past 5 years, 0-1 Booster is one of the largest corporate accelerator initiatives in Japan. Since it's inception, their team has been powering accelerators to bridge the gap between start-ups and corporates to create a culture of innovation within the startups.
This time round, they have tied up with Nikon to run a corporate accelerator program. Alongside Nikon, they will accept applications from a broad range of startups offering services and applications that utilize photography, videography, AR / VR, AI, robotics, IoT, and data analysis technologies respectively.
The Nikon Corporate Accelerator Program will support the creation of business by providing opportunities by facilitating industry connections during the exchange meetings.
Throughout the program, they will also aim at opening up innovative conversations with mentors of the program, which include board members of Nikon, representative directors from other companies in Japan, as well as investors during the program. The program is expected to last for a duration of 5 months.
