Venture Start-Up Support

The Section for Intellectual Property provides start up companies with intellectual property derived from research work carried out at Keio University. By doing so, the University is able to contribute towards the creation of venture businesses. Recently, the Section for Intellectual Property has supported the establishment of university-based ventures by linking up with various venture capital firms.

In addition, an “Entrepreneur Funding Support Program” has been established whereby Keio University will fund a maximum of JPY1 million yen to those companies that establish themselves on the basis of using intellectual property developed at Keio University.
