MBC Will Help You Make It In Japan

At MBC, we put startups at the heart of all of our activities here in Kyoto, and around the world. That’s why startups love to work with us to make their products in Japan. Our mission is focused on supporting their growth from business model, through DFM to supply chain. How do we do this? By being a hub that connects global startups to our Japanese partners, and through our venture capital fund that helps startups make it. Our vision is succeeding in making Kyoto a startup center for the highest quality manufacturing, known as monozukuri.
