NSIC, which is set to begin operations in early 2021, will serve a wide range of Japanese companies, US and Japanese startups.

Nomura today announces that it has agreed to collaborate with US non-profit research and development organization SRI International to establish an Innovation Center “Nomura SRI Innovation Center (NSIC)”.

NSIC harnesses SRI’s knowhow and experience with many cutting-edge technologies, such as next generation artificial intelligence, advanced robotics, quantum sensing and computing, and analytics, to help Japanese companies stay abreast of the latest technology breakthroughs in a wide range of fields. The center is sponsored by and partnered with Nomura to serve a wide range of Japanese companies, U.S. and Japanese startups. NSIC is set to commence operations in early 2021.

NSIC is the first membership-based innovation center dedicated to Japanese companies, with co- working space on SRI’s campus (Menlo Park, California) located in the heart of Silicon Valley, and SRI experts working closely with participating member companies on site.

NSIC connects its member Japanese companies with R&D labs, university research, incubators and startups in the U.S., NSIC will encourage innovation via a range of business practices that NSIC will synthesize and deliver via workshops, guest lectures and bespoke content –including deep technology transfer frameworks, evolving business models and best practices, go-to-market strategies and focused interactive experiences, thereby facilitating innovation and the transition of new technologies to markets.

Nomura set up an innovation office in San Francisco in September 2017, and has been exploring next-generation businesses and new technologies through its network of startups and venture capital based in the Silicon Valley area. This sponsorship is part of Nomura Group’s efforts to promote its own and clients’ business development, innovation support and global collaboration.
