What is MUFG Digital Accelerator?
The MUFG Digital Accelerator is the first startup accelerator program established by MUFG in 2015.
The program focuses on fintech businesses in the areas of payments, loans, and asset management, as well as businesses that utilize cutting-edge technologies such as AI, blockchain, and IoT. MUFG will provide full support for the steps toward commercialization, including the brush-up of business plans, assistance in building prototypes, partner selection based on the direction of the business plan, alliances, and so on.
In fact, new startup businesses and various collaborations with MUFG have emerged from this program.
For this 6th round, víz PRiZMA Corporation, Cloudbase Corporation, Stayway Corporation, MEME Corporation, and Cinnamon Corporation participated through the first round (documents), second round (pitch), and third round (individual interviews) from among the many companies that applied.
