Specty's Overseas Expansion

Specty has been selected by the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) for its "SME/SDGs Business Support Program" and is currently conducting a feasibility study to launch a business in the Philippines.

In the process, we have gained confidence that "Spectee Pro" is a solution that can make a significant contribution to improving the resilience of Philippine society, and we are currently working with the Philippine government and local companies to launch a concrete business.

We believe that our participation in "X-HUB TOKYO" will further accelerate these activities.

Comments by Satoshi Negoro, Director, COO, Head of Overseas Business, Spectrum

Startups are required to aggressively enter the global market, but it is also true that there are high hurdles to overcome, and with the help of the X-HUB Acceleration Program, we would like to actively promote awareness, local networking, and search for business partners. Disaster prevention technology is a field in which Japan should lead the world, and I hope that by developing this technology globally, we can raise the level of disaster preparedness in each country and save as many lives as possible. We will expand our activities from the Philippines to other Asian countries and to the world.
