As part of our new industry creation efforts, we are building an ecosystem that leverages the mutual knowledge, technology, and capital of start-ups, universities, hospitals, major pharmaceutical companies, and other stakeholders in the life science domain to advance research and development that transcends industry boundaries.

We are supporting the creation of innovation in the life science domain through an approach centered on three concepts-community building, which involves working through LINK-J to realize exchange, collaboration, and the nurturing and supporting of businesses in life science fields, site development, which involves providing rental laboratories and offices and developing the Life Science Building series in the Nihonbashi area of Tokyo and the Doshomachi area of Osaka, and capital provision, which involves supporting life science start-ups through limited partnership investment.
