IIMCIP at Suzuki Motor Corporation’s Headquarters in Hamamatsu

It was an honour for IIMCIP to be a part of the educational and networking trip to Japan this month, organised by Maruti Suzuki India Ltd., for startups and ecosystem partners. Our COO, Mr. Pranjal Konwar, represented IIMCIP and gained invaluable insights into Japan’s advanced startup ecosystem. Visits to Suzuki Motor Corporation’s headquarters in Hamamatsu, the Sagara Plant, the Suzuki Museum and the Yokohama R&D Center were eye-opening, showcasing remarkable innovations and the influence of Japanese culture and tradition on their work ethic.

The trip offered a valuable chance for networking and showcasing IIMCIP’s mission, offerings and success stories, with a notable highlight being the meeting with Mr. Toshihiro Suzuki, President of Suzuki Motor Corporation.
We extend our heartfelt gratitude to Dr. Tapan Sahoo (Executive Director, Head of Digital Enterprise, MSIL), Mr. Eiichi Ikeda (EVP, MSIL), Mr. Rohan Chhatwal (Vice President – Innovation & Research Centre, MSIL), Mr. Aditya Naag (Deputy General Manager, MSIL) and the entire team at Maruti Suzuki India Limited for facilitating this memorable trip.

IIMCIP has had a fruitful association with Maruti Suzuki India Limited in identifying and assisting tech-based startups working on innovations in mobility and related areas through MSIL’s incubation program. We look forward to strengthening this association further and accelerating the momentum of our efforts to support startup and innovation.
