India is a country that is rapdily 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 point of view that I obtained because I am locally rooted now in India, I wish to continue to contribute to the development of the startup ecosystem of India and therefore Asia as a whole.
