We had a contest for a business start-up plan in Tokyo/Osaka via video conference system.  18 professors have proposed their entrepreneur project plans based on their research output.  Here is a review by the Committee Chair Dr. Eiichi Maruyama: "We committee members all enjoyed to learn what Osaka University professors think of entrepreneurship.  They are not much trained in terms of business start-up planning, but we found that the project proposals were all very highly qualified.  We have recommended the some project proposals as typical good examples which contain the originality of Osaka's Photonics Center with clear and detail plans for the goal.  I would like to emphasize that business start-up and commercialization will not wait for you. Please move immediately when the chance comes to you, Do not miss it.  The research plan should be submitted to the government regular research grant "Kakenhi," but not for entrepreneurship contest."
