How it began
In Japan, it takes 11 days to start a business and 8 official procedures to get up and running—a foreboding hint of things to come for the foreign business owner.

After decades of navigating Japan’s challenging business landscape, a few serial technology entrepreneurs teamed up with like-minded investors to solve the largest problems they had collectively faced as foreigners doing business in Japan.

They were looking for…
  • A faster way to break into Japan’s marketplace.
  • An easier way to get Japanese business to-dos done.
  • A simpler way to clear Japan’s language barriers.
A mission concept was born: Making it easier to live, work, and do business in Japan, designed by foreign entrepreneurs and founders—for foreign business owners and founders.
