MoBagel Carries Forward Orange Fab Asia’s Mission with Launch of Cross-Border Open Innovation Program Focused on AI and Data

From Orange Fab Asia to Solve AI: MoBagel Continues to Support Global Startups with Innovative Technology and Invites Global Partners to Join the Solve AI Program

MoBagel, a leading artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) startup based in California, recently established a Japanese subsidiary named Solve AI, with Hiroshi Nishikawa appointed as its CEO. The company is set to launch an ambitious cross-border open innovation initiative called the Solve AI Challenge, which aims to bridge the gap between enterprises seeking innovative ideas and startups eager to propose solutions in areas such as AI and digital transformation.

Solve AI Challenge is an extension of Orange Fab Asia, a startup accelerator program of French telecom operator Orange. Hiroshi Nishikawa launched Orange Fab Asia in Japan and operated it for about 9 years until 2022, supporting startups not only in Japan but also in Taiwan, Korea, Singapore, and many other countries. 

Through the Solve AI Challenge, MoBagel is committed to providing comprehensive support to startups and fostering innovation in the AI ecosystem. The company is offering its products free of charge to startups participating in the program, and several well-known global corporations have shown high interest in joining the program. Each partner will independently establish their Challenge topic, with startups being asked to propose solutions to address these issues. Partners will offer business opportunities as rewards to startups with the most highly evaluated proposals, fostering a collaborative and innovative environment for all parties involved.

Within the program, each partner will assess and choose startups to collaborate with based on their specific criteria. After several months of PoC (proof-of-concept), a Demo Day is anticipated to be held, during which the outcomes of these collaborations will be showcased. 

Solve AI is presently in the process of inviting partners for the program. If you are interested, please visit the website >>
