FUJIFILM North America Corporation Opens Innovation Hub In California’s Silicon Valley

Japan-based FUJIFILM North America Corporation opened its all-new Open Innovation Hub in California’s Silicon Valley.

“We are very pleased to see that Fujifilm, a renowned Japanese Corporation, has decided to invest and open one of their three worldwide Technology Hubs here in Silicon Valley,” said Carl Guardino, CEO of the Silicon Valley Leadership Group.

“Our mission at Fujifilm is to reach out to the innovation community using the OI-Hub and then partner to bring these new Fujifilm technologies to market faster,” said Dr. Bruce Novich, Division President, FUJIFILM North America Corporation, Industrial and Corporate New Business Development Division.

“Fujifilm’s new OI-Hub is one of a new group of business development partnering tools. These partnering tools have been designed to drive Fujifilm’s leading edge technologies and products through conventional market barriers at an accelerated rate,” added Dr. Novich.

The new U.S. OI-Hub is modeled on the newly-established Tokyo Open Innovation Hub at Fujifilm’s headquarters where business partners can experience and explore first-hand the core technologies that underlie materials and products developed by the Fujifilm Group, as well as fresh breakthrough technologies, materials and products currently under development.

“The U.S. OI-Hub enables North American customers and new business partners to engage in collaborative dialog with our leading technologists, and to discover the depth and breadth of Fujifilm’s global technology portfolio. Collaborators will directly interface with Fujifilm’s global innovators through a series of interaction tools which have been designed to facilitate rapid technology understanding and co-ideation which can accelerate and support their own innovative research, products and services” said Dr. Novich.
