Message to startups

I also started up a business for wearable assistance suits as a group venture. At that time, I faced many problems, not only with product warranty and other manufacturing issues, but also with user access, sales, and after-sales maintenance. To solve these problems, we have created the WORLD ROBOTEC website to connect startups, users, and manufacturers. Using this website as a contact point, based on our comprehensive “integrated, consistent system” for manufacturing and “industry-academia-government collaboration network,” we provide comprehensive support right up to commercialization. Let us join you in your new manufacturing endeavors.
