A place to talk about dream in Silicon Valley

I have some favorite places to meet my great friends in Silicon Valley. One of the most favorite places is Rosewood Sand Hill in Menlo Park.  Over 4 years ago, my great HBS friends invited me over there for dinner, and really enjoyed, since then, iv been coming back to invite many great entrepreneur and investor friends to talk about innovative ideas and businesses. The foods and drinks are great, so as the atmosphere, and the beautiful view.  I always have a great time talking about dreams with my great friends at Rosewood. cheers!

With my great friends in Silicon Valley

Why Angel Investment is important?

I attended in the dinner party of Life Science Angels (LSA) in Menlo Park last night. I usually go to the screening meetings, and also study how to be a great angel investor organized by LSA. Im honored to be a part of LSA, and always meet many great angels, and also startups.

One of my dreams is to make everyone happier by giving people more opportunities to try new things! How can we do that? I like to build the Angel Investment Culture in Japan in the near future. Nowadays, everyone in Japan is also trying to build ‘Innovation Eco-system’ by having many VCs, Incubation Centers, Co-working spaces, entrepreneurship education, lawyers starting to support more startups, etc. However, still the most important factor is missing in Japan. That is Angel Investment. Some serial entrepreneurs do invest in startups more lately, but not enough angels over there. What we need to change is to let Japanese HNWI (High Net Worth Individual)  to know the importance of angel investing in startups is to bring next innovation, and it will generate the economical growth for themselves and GDP.

Normally, parents pay for their children. Some also support nephew, and niece. Wealthy people in heart tend to donate a lot of money for scholarship, and supporting many students. Why? Because its very important for building the bright future. If you give many young people more opportunity to learn, they will become more smart and kind to make the difference in the world. So i believe in supporting more young people, who want to become entrepreneurs, is also very very important. Investing in startups is the key to save our world!!! Save Startups, Save the World!! Let’s invest in our bright future!!!!!!!! We love you!!!!!!!!! Love is the Answer ❤️

Diversity of Dreamers like #StartupFire at 42

On 15th of February, we hold #StartupFire at 42 Silicon Valley. We had over 100 dreamers came to our event. We really appreciate to everyone who came and supported. Especially all speakers, performers, who inspired all participants together, and thanks so much 42 for letting us use the amazing facility, and provided foods and many students helped us.

This is totally my passion to organize #StartupFire, and bring everyone get together and have a fun. I do this because i love it, and i do this because i like to see everyone’s BIG Smile. And I do this for ❤️

I believe in one of the most important thing to provide the innovative atmosphere is bringing many different kinds of people in the one place together. Yet, i also know that not great impact you can bring if there is only different kinds of people, what we really need is we need to invite ‘Diversity of Dreamers’ in the same place same time. And how you connect those people together is not too easy, but i wanted to try something cool with my crew.

This time, i wanted to try something new, and bring more HIPHOP flavor into Startup event. So i asked my HIPHOP crew KAZOKU (it means Family in Japanese) to perform to entertain audience.  As we call #FreeMovement by #StartupFire, we like to save the world by changing people’s minds, more free, feel free, think free, act free…..free to love, free to do things you wanna do, so we act HIPHOP to express our freedom in front of audience….real free-stying♪

We KAZOKU actually made the song for especially this event at 42.

Our song is called as 58 42.

Lyrics of our HOOK…

For the gang Free Game for the gang (✖️4)

Keep it real, 58 ➕42 (100)
Keep it real, 58 and 42 (100)
Keep it real, 58 42 (100)
Keep it real, 58 42 (100)
