About This Program

Mitsubishi Electric is sharing their IPs (technologies developed inhouse) with young entrepreneurs/researchers to co-create future business. We are open to new business ideas and/or product ideas inspired by their IPs. And the program is to incubate the idea into real business seeds through a series of workshops. At the end of the workshops, we will have closed idea showcase events (i.e., pitch event) in front of Mitsubishi Electric members, and the selected teams will be awarded to further accelerate each plan!

List of the following technology to be discussed in this program:

  • Mitsubishi Electric’s “Smart Air Coating” Keeps Grime Off Metal & Plastic
    A new technology, Smart Air Coating, which helps to keep metal and plastic products free of dirt mixed with water, snow or ice, and dry dust and dirt. The company plans to apply the technology in products as soon as possible.
  • Mitsubishi Electric’s SeaAerial Antenna Uses Seawater Plume
    This is an innovative antenna system that shoots a column of seawater into the air to create a conductive plume for the transmission and reception of radio-frequency waves. The system can be easily implemented offshore or along shorelines. SeaAerial is thought to be the world’s first seawater antenna capable of receiving digital terrestrial broadcasts for normal viewing.
