GLOBIS University Creates Think Tank to Expand Technovate Research


Chiyoda-ku, Tokyo–In June 2023, the Graduate School of Management, GLOBIS University established the Technovate Management Research Institute (TechMaRI). This think tank will serve as a research center for industry and talent development. At the helm will be Soichi Kariyazono, Managing Partner of GLOBIS Capital Partners.

Above are the networks of research, surveying, education, dissemination, and application contributing to TechMaRI.


TechMaRi aims to expand Technovate research by building off the foundations of GLOBIS University. Tapping into the knowledge offered by the GLOBIS MBA and capital invested by GLOBIS Capital Partners, this newly founded institute endeavors to make GLOBIS the number 1 driving force in the Technovate era and will offer cutting-edge insights to serve both industry and individuals.

TechMaRI is made of five synergies, which include: research, surveying, education, dissemination, and application. Within GLOBIS University, the institute is working to lead the change with up-to-date and applicable curriculum in GLOBIS courses including Venture Capital & Finance, Venture Management, and Venture Strategy Planning. Content in these areas is being adapted based on the globalization of the market, use of digital technologies, and increasing reliance on AI.

Research and survey results on business education will be published and available to the public in a periodical journal*2. Looking to the future, TechMaRI will be critical in knowledge-sharing and helping to increase synergy with stakeholders of GLOBIS. Furthermore, GLOBIS Manabi-Hodai learning, a subscription-based video learning service of GLOBIS, has produced content for learning GX knowledge in cooperation with TechMaRI to promote GX (Green Transformation)*3 driven by the Japanese Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry.
