KEIO SFC Future Innovation and Entrepreneurship research consortium
Although systems for incubation support have already been established, there are still research tasks that remain for further development, such as better entrepreneurship education, accumulation of incubation knowledge, and endeavors in strategy design. Therefore, we have reorganized the SFC Incubation Village Research Consortium in order to incorporate it in the planned SIV Entrepreneur Laboratory as a core for research activities. In this consortium (KIEP: Keio SFC Innovation & Entrepreneurship Platform Consortium), we will promote research activities based on entrepreneurship education.
Objectives and Targets
The SFC Incubation Village Research Consortium (SIV), established in April 2002, has been very active with the aim of developing a successful venture incubation model lead by the university with SFC as its base. Initially set up as a place to learn about both domestic and overseas advanced cases, it is currently highly evaluated as the most active and pioneering organization in Japan. It is also widely recognized as one of Japan's leading incubators by a variety of overseas organizations. KIEP will continue to expand its activities as an organization that expects to play a key role in the creation of new business at Keio, with the basic concept of "from research to practice."
