The program offers great possibilities through working together and brings advantages for both parties. When bringing new, innovative and disruptive innovations to the market ? such as our novel blood-testing technology to forecast health in chronic diseases - collaboration with established and distinguished partner like Fujitsu is a great asset.

We were able to increase the value of our micro robotic taxis by participating in the Fujitsu’s Accelerator program. During the program, Fujitsu provided us support that we needed to grow as a startup.
I believe this program is the "missing piece" to realize mutual complementation. We will need more time to realize automatic driving, but we will work together toward a world where no one is inconvenienced by transportation.
