Shaping a better world

Since our founding over 100 years ago, Panasonic has been dedicated to creating technologies that move us all forward, improving people's lives and making the world a better place. We believe that passion drives progress, leading to purposeful action and innovation.

Team Panasonic was founded to strengthen this promise.

Featuring world-class athletes, the members of Team Panasonic are both leaders in their respective fields and dedicated advocates who share our commitment to giving back and contributing to society. What we share is simple, yet foundational: A passionate commitment to continual improvement.

Champions for Progress

Team Panasonic athletes believe that true progress happens when success isn’t the end but the beginning of the next challenge, one where the bar is raised and what is possible is redefined. It is this drive that moves a true champion forward.

It is a passion for progress that guides these athletes - and it steers the decisions we make at Panasonic, continually advancing technology to help move humanity forward.

Playing an active role

At Panasonic, we know it is imperative we continue to do our part creating a better world for all. It is because of this mission we are proud to align ourselves with athletes who represent our company’s ideals - cooperation, discipline, team spirit, dedication to excellence and a commitment to giving back - and are driven by the same question:

“How can I take an active role in making the world a better place?”


Katie Ledecky

Few athletes become elite champions. Fewer hold world records. Katie has achieved both measures, driven by a simple philosophy: success is determined by the work you put in. Today, she inspires young people to pursue STEM opportunities, reminding them that accomplishments are earned, luck doesn’t win medals and self-determination is the most rewarding gift you can give to yourself.


To inspire student innovation in science, technology, engineering, and math (“STEM”), Panasonic is partnering with Katie Ledecky to launch the STEM Forward educational initiative, engaging with Discovery Education to help make this educational program a reality. The initiative combines Katie's passion for STEM education and advocacy, Panasonic’s legacy of innovation, and Discovery Education’s worldwide leadership in education technology. STEM Forward connects students in grades 3-8 to the game-changing power of technology with standards-aligned resources for any learning environment at no cost.


Nathan Chen

It’s almost as though Nathan Chen was born to figure skate. Growing up around the ice, he’s been in the rink for almost as long as he can remember. Find out how his drive and determination made him not just an Olympic figure skater, but a champion.


Maame Biney

Happenstance brought Maame Biney to her first ice rink – but her passion, energy and love for the sport led her to speed skating. Now she’s taking everything she’s learned from her drive to be the best and applying that both on and off the ice.


Noah Elliott

By the time he was 14, Noah Elliott had developed into a promising semi-pro skateboarder. But when a cancer diagnosis led to the amputation of his leg, he didn’t end his athletic career. Instead, his will and resolve led him to heights he’d never even imagined.


Tyler McGregor

At first, the news seemed insurmountable. Doctors needed to amputate the leg of teenage hockey player Tyler McGregor to save his life. Learn how the support of coaches and his family - along with his passion and determination - helped him overcome these challenges to become a champion.
