Holoeyes is a startup company that provides VR software specialized for clinical medicine and medical education, etc. It converts 2D data of the human body obtained by CT and MRI into 3D computer graphics, and enables users to perform surgery and education while checking organs and blood vessels in VR. Startups and other organizations have recognized this software, and it is attracting attention both in Japan and abroad.
As Asteria is accelerating its growth strategy by efficiently investing in companies that match the "4D" (Data, Device, Decentralized, Design) investment focus area, it has determined that Holoeyes' business model and services match the "4Ds". In addition, we decided to invest in Holoeyes because we can pursue business synergies with Asteria ART, a subsidiary specializing in AI, such as building a medical database using AI technology.
