IVI Startup Seminar 2021 will be held on April 15, Non-members are also welcome

   We will have Startup Seminar 2021 on April 15 (Thursday) as the first project of fiscal year 2021.

 

   The real world and the Internet (cyber) world are merging more and more, and the CPS (cyber-physical) world will accelerate more and more in the future. According to newspapers and other media, the manufacturing industry has been recovering its business performance comparing to the rest of industries. However, the key to making a new leap is to take advantage of this opportunity to reform the companies’ structures and change their mindsets with the coming of a new era.

   We will be promoting the use of IVI’s services to mid-sized companies in particular this year. Non-members are also welcome to attend. We look forward to seeing you at the seminar.
