Founder & General Partner
Brief – Was consistently covering start-ups in the IT/Internet sector at the Tokyo and NY headquarters of Nomura Securities Group. Lead many start-ups to IPO. Moved to India in 2014, experienced starting a start-up on site. Established Incubate Fund India in 2016, and appointed as a general partner.
Message – India is a country that is rapidly developing, on the other hand, it also still faces a lot of challenges. We want to create start-ups together with the talented local entrepreneurs that will brilliantly solve such problems. I cherish both my point of view as a person born and raised in Japan, a developed country with new problems, and also the local point of view that I obtained in India, I wish to continue to contribute to the development of the startup ecosystem of India and therefore Asia as a whole.
