Chosen startups will be able to obtain grants of up to 5 million yen ($50,000) as well as rewards like a complimentary use of Docomo’s co-working space and mentoring/cooperation from the program’s partnering companies. Here’s a quick rundown on what they are working on.
- Unlog (literally meaning ‘poo log’)
A free iOS app that lets you input details about each poop that you make. You can specify the size, shape, and color of your poops, as well as input how bad it smelled or whether or not you experienced any discomfort. Our readers may recall we have featured this app before.
- Money Smart
A personal finance management platform comparable to an enhanced online account book. But details have not been disclosed.
A payments and reward platform that uses your fingerprint as an authentication token, saving users from having to bring a real wallet or digital wallet when shopping.
Details of the forth startup have not been disclosed. These startups will take part in the incubation program starting tomorrow, and their progress during the program period will be showcased at Demo Day on November 6.
