Partner / Director Takashi Kitao

100 years ago, great men tried changing Japan at the end of the samurai period. Now, through the Internet, people who are called “ startup," tried to change the world. Even after shifting from startup management as an entrepreneur in Latin America to support for startups throughout Asia, my ideals have not changed: It is my mission to work with entrepreneurs to help solve the world's issues and deliver a brighter tomorrow. Let's work together to build services that will stand the test of time and will earn the admiration of people in all corners of the world!
