Episodes from your school days (club activities, majors, etc.)
I belonged to multiple clubs (soccer and a cappella) and seminars, and was blessed with many playmates. Although I failed the national government exam and had to repeat a year, as a result, I was able to participate in long-term volunteering in Sanriku district after 3.11 and experience studying abroad in the UK, which became very valuable experiences.
Culture, foods, and lifestyle from Japan, UK, Spain are my best favorites.

Why did you become a VC?
The reason I became a VC was because I had a strong interest in investing and startups. The reason I continue as a capitalist is because I’d like to challenge the mission of creating a VC industry in Japan, alongside the entrepreneurs we support and respect.
