Global Partner Co-Creation Program

Fujitsu Accelerator Program for CaaS

What is Fujitsu Accelerator Program for CaaS?

This program started on October 25, 2022, with the aim to rapidly solve social issues by co-creating new use cases on ”CaaS”(Fujitsu Computing as a Service)with innovative startups in Japan and overseas that share the values that Fujitsu Uvance aims to achieve. As a "Fujitsu Accelerator Program for CaaS Co-Creation Partner," participating startups will receive free use of "CaaS," support and training from dedicated engineers, and a variety of benefits related to the creation of use cases through co-creation. We will provide a variety of benefits related to the creation of use cases through co-creation.

In collaboration with startups in Japan and overseas, we aim to co-create "CaaS" use cases in various fields such as Web 3.0, healthcare, manufacturing, and logistics, etc. In order to further strengthen and accelerate the construction of a startup ecosystem with "CaaS," we will work with startup support organizations around the world that act as a hub connecting startups and companies. In addition, to further strengthen and accelerate the construction of a "CaaS" startup ecosystem, we will collaborate with startup support organizations around the world.

The community's aim

Fujitsu recognizes computing resources as one of the commons and shares them with the ecosystem in order to realize a sustainable world. The startups participating in the Fujitsu Accelerator Program for CaaS and Fujitsu will work together to explore and develop new use cases for advanced computing by examining the value and potential that can be realized through CaaS. The startups and Fujitsu will jointly create sustainable business models that leverage the use cases developed, integrate the applications into Fujitsu's CaaS platform as service components, and work together to expand their businesses globally for Fujitsu's broad range of customers.

Yohei Iwasaki, CEO of Anifie, Inc. (Irvine, United States)

I am honored to participate in such a state-of-the-art initiative. We enable users to access strong computing power in our metaverse. This opens up a variety of possibilities, including big data analysis of IoT data from smart cities and next-generation metaverse entertainment using artificial intelligence. Together with Fujitsu, we aim to create value by identifying specific use cases in order to provide users with a comfortable service experience.

Masaru Sogabe, CEO of GRID INC. (Minato-ku, Tokyo)

Our company is building a system that optimizes and automates planning operations in the social infrastructure field using Digital Twins and AI technology. We anticipate that applications (models) based on quantum algorithms will be realized in the future through the use of CaaS.

Yasushi Funakoshi, CEO of HIKKY Co., Ltd. (Shibuya-ku, Tokyo)

The demand for VR is growing rapidly around the world. Since its foundation, our company has provided innovative services centered on Virtual Market, the world's largest exhibition in the metaverse space. By participating in this program and thinking about what computers should be like in the next generation Internet age, we will seek to increase the value of new experiences in the metaverse space to meet the expectations of many users.

Florian Haspinger, CEO of Holo-Light

We are excited to partner with Fujitsu to bring the benefits of the Industrial Metaverse to even more businesses. By combining Fujitsu's Computing as a Service with our XRnow platform and Augmented Reality Engineering Space AR 3S, we can deliver a truly transformative platform that empowers people to operate seamlessly in a digital space. Our goal is to create an end-to-end solution that not only simplifies operations but also drives innovation and growth for businesses across a range of industries.

Takehiro Jimbo, CEO of Japan Research Activity Support, Inc. (Kobe City, Hyogo Prefecture)

Based on our philosophy to "allow researchers to analyze data at their own discretion," we support and promote research, such as medical image analysis, behavioral experiment tracking analysis, gene data analysis centering on single cell analysis, and construction and maintenance of research servers necessary for analysis. Based on the research results of supercomputer "Fugaku", our expectations are high that commercialization of "CaaS" will be realized in the future.

Yu Yamashiro, CEO of Jij Inc. (Bunkyo-ku, Tokyo)

We develop and provide quantum and optimization middleware for state-of-the-art Ising machines and quantum computers. Also, we aim to expand our business by promoting the implementation of applications of cutting-edge computing technologies using our middleware. I hope that using CaaS will further boost the democratization of advanced computing technologies.

Kentaro Oku, CEO of Kashika Inc. (Shibuya-ku, Tokyo)

One of our business areas is the development of HPC visualization systems. The provision of services through CaaS matches with the direction of our company, and we believe that we can work together to capitalize on our strengths. We will take this opportunity to visualize various items by choosing the best HPC solutions.

Shoji Koga, CEO of KOGASOFTWARE Inc. (Taito-ku, Tokyo)

Our "KO-KO Demand Bus" is an on-demand transportation system that aims to solve social problems associated with mobility difficulties, particularly in areas with no public transportation or underpopulated areas. Through the accelerator program, we have collaborated with Fujitsu in the development of technology for on-demand transportation services. Together, we aim to realize a society with zero mobility constraints. We hope that CaaS will be used in the future to further increase opportunities for people to go out, and to make further progress in solving societal issues including the optimization of social security benefits, regional revitalization, and greenhouse gas (GHG) reduction.

Taka Nagao, Co-Founder & Chief Executive Officer of Kyoto Fusioneering Ltd. (Chiyoda-ku, Tokyo)

Our vision is to solve global issues and bring about a new future for mankind through the ultimate energy solution: fusion.
