\QUANTUM Accelerator

\QUANTUM Accelerator provides comprehensive support for business development through the co-creation of the “innovative technology and ideas of a startup” in combination with “the power of a major corporation” – all based on a foundation of corporate venturing acceleration.

Hakuhodo’s in-depth knowledge of the Japanese market, combined with TBWA’s global networks, allows the organization to provide management support from project managers with experience in both major corporations that act as sponsors as well as from the perspective of the startups participating in projects. A wide range of other creative members also provide support, including experienced designers and engineers, along with growth hacker teams.

Based on its belief that getting major corporations and startups working together is crucial to building an innovation ecosystem in Japan, \QUANTUM will continue to offer support services to startups as it pursues a variety of collaborations.
