We were selected as a participant in the “IP Acceleration program for Startups (IPAS)” of Japan Patent Office for this fiscal year.

This is a support program to startups for their business development, based on IP. We applied to this program based on our myopia research using violet light, which is a novel approach that can be undertaken in one’s lifestyle to prevent myopia from worsening. We were one of the five startups selected from 53 applicants to this program.
