“SPEEDA Trends” Released in English—Original Content on the Latest Developments Driving Corporate Evolution


Tokyo – April 20, 2020 – Uzabase, Inc. is delighted to announce that, following a meeting of its Board of Directors held today, the decision has been made to convert its equity-method affiliate Mimir, Inc. into a wholly owned subsidiary.
Our plan going forward is to ensure the smooth fusion of both companies, including the integration of Mimir's expert research services into our SPEEDA platform.

"Trends" refer to the developments and changes that are reshaping the business landscape as we know it, as well as their impact. This brand new content was first released in Japanese on the SPEEDA platform in September 2019, further enhancing our already comprehensive database of company and industry information.

This release sees reports on approximately 40 "Trends", including regenerative medicine, automated stores, MaaS, and medical robots, become available in English on SPEEDA, providing users access to cutting-edge content that shines a light on the wide range of new business opportunities emerging from technological advances, regulatory reform, and social changes, as well the restructuring taking place in existing industries. We plan to add even more English-language “Trends” to the platform going forward.

Message from Yasunori Naito, Chief Executive Officer of SPEEDA Asia Business

"SPEEDA Trends" provide our users with a deep understanding of the latest developments in each "Trend" from a global and multifaceted perspective. We believe that they can provide new insights to users developing business in Asia, in particular, as they allow for comparisons of the activity taking place in the USA, China, Japan, and other centres of innovation.

For this first English-language release of SPEEDA Trends, we have focused on areas currently home to comparatively high investment activity on a global scale, as well as in Southeast Asia in particular. The ability to gather quality information remains a crucial aspect of the ideation process for new business development and it is my firm belief that the English-language version of SPEEDA Trends can form a basis for the discussions of new business development and planning departments.
