  16. 16. The advantage of SIV model <ul><li>SIV, the research project inside university, was the center pillar of ecosystem. </li></ul><ul><li>SIV was the engine of innovation and the architect of ecosystem based on academic perspective. </li></ul>
  17. 17. After SIV: KIEP <ul><li>No academic perspective. </li></ul><ul><li>Ecosystem became REAL ecosystem with no center pillar. </li></ul><ul><li>Very few startups launched. </li></ul><ul><li>Mentor-mitakai became hidden center pillar. </li></ul><ul><li>Total budget is decreasing. </li></ul><ul><li>No governance! </li></ul><ul><li>KBC became the engine of Innovation. </li></ul>
  18. 18. Some thoughts (1) <ul><li>KIEP or KEEP? </li></ul><ul><ul><li>SIV never succeed if I continue SIV for three more years. KIEP is definitely doing well steadily. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>What’s mission? What’s expectation? KEEP is definitely not the mission. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Mentor Mitakai </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Transition to next generation? </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Educator or incubator? Has mission changed? </li></ul></ul><ul><li>KBC </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Is business plan competition really a great model? </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Anybody who is ready for global collaboration? </li></ul></ul>
  19. 19. Some thoughts (2) <ul><li>EGG-JAPAN </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Incubator or real estate business? </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Innovator’s dilemma?

  20. 20. The Rules of Game Changed! <ul><li>Not globalization, but “globalized” (past tense) </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Talented people are in global labor market, not in domestic market. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>After financial crisis, now we can say “we hate the US”. World is not flat but includes several centers. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Japanese people who can steer global society can contribute to Japan. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Startup is NOT the best solution as the catalyst of innovation. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>We must solve new way of human resource, IP rights, financial resource allocation. What is the exit strategy for equity based finance? </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Struggle among generations </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Do you pay pensions? Noway! </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Definitely, there is conflict of interest among generations! </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Innovation system must be designed based on new rule! </li></ul>
