Moon is Here to Light the Way

We surface the best ideas from our 42,000 employees, and provide the resources and environment for them
to build and launch businesses out into the world.
Our entrepreneurs have access to Mitsui & Co.’s global network, and can innovate in any country or industry.

We do business in various countries and industries. That’s why at Moon, we focus on the following spaces
to have maximum impact in the world.

Blockchain

Mitsui & Co. is a global connector, conducting business around the world. Moon is excited about blockchain’s potential to democratize networking and enable connection at not only the company, but at the individual level.

Blockchain

Biotechnology

We believe that biotechnology will be at the center of the next “industrial revolution.” Advances in fields such as DNA analysis and genome editing have the potential to solve serious world problems from aging societies to access to sustainable energy.

Biotechnology

Space

Space is a new, untapped market that is full of opportunities. While space exploration may feel far away, new space businesses such as hotels and solar-powered energy plants are expected to launch as early as 2028.

Space

Aging

Aging societies lead to various other problems, such as rising healthcare costs and dwindling workforces. We believe that we need to change it means to "age" and create a new vision for the state of an "aging society."

Aging

Automation

With advances in AI and Robotics, it is forecasted that as much as 49% of work in countries such as Japan may be automated within the next 20 years. We are excited to explore new business opportunities that arise with an automated society.
