Creating new value with startups

As a result, six companies were awarded the "Excellence Award" and selected to participate in this program.
In closing the Pitch Contest, Mr. Toshiro Abe, Executive Vice President and Representative Director, thanked the companies that took the stage and said, "Employees who have the will to change and are willing to accompany us as Catalysts have been a great eye-opener for us. I expect the best output in a good form of mutual enlightenment," he said in his message.
