Our Strengths

Agility that comes from being a newly established division, implementation systems that emphasize speed, systems that enable specialization in growth domains

As a division newly established in 2019, we will pursue growth themes in domains that are expected to see explosive growth in the future, emphasizing speed to engage in the creation of new business models.

Development and construction of new business models focusing on solving social/ customer issues regardless of the product verticals of existing businesses

By anticipating the future need for social infrastructure and technological foundations (e.g. blockchain and next generation batteries), we will be able to create new business models.

Systems capable of drawing on the strengths of Marubeni

Through collaboration with the other business divisions, we will promote businesses that fully utilize all of Marubeni’s resources. By promoting horizontal expansion (entering new domains and linking them with existing ones), we will engage in the creation of new platform functions.

Access and incorporation of the world’s most cutting-edge technologies and innovations

We will use startup ecosystems and innovation centers to cultivate knowledge and experience related to the world’s most cutting-edge technologies and innovations, and develop revolutionary business models that have been proven in Europe and the U.S. as new businesses in Asia.
