Place of birth/residence
Hobbies, Favorite Things, Holidays
Listening to music (I often listen to Future Base, Vocaloid, K-POP, etc.) No matter how much time I have, it's never enough. I want to live in a house someday where I can put however big a woofer I want) Reading (I tend to read books in the humanities and social sciences, not business books or novels)
Episodes from your school days (club activities, majors, etc.)
Although I played badminton in elementary and junior high school, I realized my lack of athleticism in the second year of junior high school and retired from sports in junior high school. In high school, I joined the brass band club, and in college, music became the center of my life as I performed a cappella and composed music.
Portugal: There is a castle in Lisbon called Castillo de São Jorge, where a large number of peacocks were kept on the grounds, which was most relaxing. As a bird lover, it was a dream world.
Sony: Filling the world with excitement through the power of creativity and technology. (In fact, I am a Sony believer in some aspects.)
Why did you become a VC?
Because it is a job that requires constant learning and keeps my spirit of intellectual pursuit alive. I think I would be happy if I could be close to entrepreneurs and watch their startups from the time they begin to run to the time they make an impact on society.
The worldview you want to achieve, the problems you want to solve, and the areas you want to make better
High level of abstraction: A world where all potentials are released
Medium level of abstraction: A world where people, organizations, and actions that should be valued more highly and rewarded equally by the world properly receive their value to the world and are rewarded equally as a result.
Small abstraction (example of a problem to be solved): The fact that inspiration obtained from one's place of residence or upbringing is biased, automatically narrowing one's options in life. The fact that Japanese value, which should reach more of the world, reaches only a few people in Japan due to its inappropriate production and distribution.
