ASICS held the DEMO DAY for the ASICS Accelerator Program, its business partnership accelerator program for startups, on February 22nd, 2021 at the ASICS Japan headquarters in Tokyo.

The theme for applications for this program was 'Sound Mind, Sound Body™', and application enrollment began from October 2020.
