Technologist & Entrepreneur
Immersed in the world of communication technologies and computers from a young age, my journey was profoundly influenced by the dynamic tech movement in Silicon Valley. It was during a pivotal trip to the U.S. West Coast in my middle school years that I fully grasped the immense power of technology to revolutionize society. This experience ignited a deep-seated passion for software development, leading me down the entrepreneurial path.
Embarking on this journey, I established my first venture based on an internet service I developed while still a student. Since then, my entrepreneurial spirit has taken me across Japan, Singapore, Taiwan, and the United States, where I have concentrated on pioneering startups in the realms of mobile applications, cloud hosting, IoT semiconductors, and blockchain technology.
Driven by a vision of a globally interconnected world, I am passionately working towards a future where each individual possesses their own AI. In this future, humans, objects, and AI coexist in harmony, contributing equally to a balanced and equitable society.
