Innovation from
Gunma University!

Hello everyone. I am Hideyuki Itabashi, a Chairman of GUDi Co., Ltd. I am also a professor of Gunma University. I established "GUDi (Gunma University Development & Innovation)" to make Gunma the best innovation base in the world, like Silicon Valley.

In order to “make Gunma into Silicon Valley”, we need a source of knowledge that will bring about the rise of innovation. Gunma University is responsible for that.

 I am currently in charge of public relations at Gunma University.Therefore, the direction the university is aiming for is "formulation and promotion of SNK."
SNK stands for
S = Stanford
N = Nuku (means “surpass” in Japanese)
K = Keikaku (means “plan” in Japanese)

 It won't be possible overnight.However, even after 50 years, Gunma University will definitely overtake Stanford University.How can I do that?
 it's simple.There are three things to do.

1.Bringing students and faculty members who have a spirit from the outside (Soto).
2.Increasing the spirit of internal (Naka) students and faculty members.
3.Collecting money (Kane).

"Soto," "Naka," and "Kane," which are also "SNK."

Of these, S and N are still not so bad. There are many students and faculty members who are enthusiastic about their studies and research aiming to be the best in the world. Many of the research results are at the top level in the world.
However, because K (Kane, means “money” in Japanese) has lost a lot, the current situation is far more open. Stanford University is said to have about 2 trillion yen in funding. The current Gunma University is far from over. If the university has abundant funds, it can support the tuition fees and study abroad costs for students, and the university can also pay for research. Universities will definitely develop if we can create an environment in which we can engage in education and research with peace of mind.
So how does Stanford University raise money? That is, a part of the profits generated by business ventures by universities are returned to the universities.

You can create this system at Gunma University!

 "Good Eye (GUDi)" was established with the intention of thinking.
 At the start, Goodeye develops products centered on my research results and develops its business.But I'm not going to stay here. As the slogan of "Turning the knowledge of the university into value", we will commercialize the research results of faculty members other than myself.We also actively support the entrepreneurship of teachers and students.Based on Good Eye, we will continue to create second and third university-launched ventures and build an ecosystem of innovation in Gunma.

Make a miracle from Gunma!

If you would like to encounter this "miracle", please feel free to contact us. As a researcher, as a collaborative research partner, as a manufacturer of GUDi products, or as an evangelist aiming to spread, there are many things that we would like you to cooperate with. Let's go hand in hand to the miracle. Let's make a miracle with us!
