The former Nagono Elementary School, located an 8-minute walk from Nagoya Station, has been rebranded the Nagono Campus. This new incubation facility in Nagoya was established for the purpose of fostering entrepreneurs and venture companies under the concept “open, gather, be born: a school to nurture the next 100 years.” The facility has co-working spaces, shared offices, and private offices matched to the size needed by each company. Convention rooms and event spaces are also available.
This facility was established as a rental basis laboratory managed by the Small and Medium Enterprise Infrastructure Development Organization (independent). It supports venture companies and small/medium companies so they can turn incipient technologies possessed by local universities into real businesses in the fields of medicine, engineering, and life science in Nagoya. Numerous ventures that originated with Nagoya University, Nagoya Institute of Technology, and Nagoya City University are based at this facility.
