Attraction to TRINUS’ Concept


What was your motivation to join TRINUS ?

As a venture capitalist, I have invested in a number of start-up companies. One of them is TRINUS.
There are many interesting technologies in the world, but many have disappeared without being utilized. One of the reasons for this is that such advanced technology does not reach its production, in other words, it doesn’t meet the creators’ or designers’ thinking.
TRINUS initiative aims to create new products through combining such advanced technologies with the unique ideas of creators. I thought it was a very interesting concept and decided to support it.

Imagining a brighter world where buried technology is unleashed.


– What are your goals for the future?

First of all, I would like to improve my ability to promote and communicate about products on several levels.
No matter how good the technology is and how good the product is, as long as the customer doesn’t see it or pick it up, it’s just going to be buried.

Imagining a brighter world where buried technology is unleashed.


– What is your role in TRIUNS?

Mainly, I provide advice on management.
I introduce clients and discuss the direction of our EC site that we are currently focusing on. I also support hiring activities.

 

– What is the attraction of TRINUS?

The system made by TRINUS allows technology that has been buried up until now to bloom in light from new perspectives, which itself is attractive. The platform frees up a plethora of underutilized technologies. I’ve dreamt of such a world.

Additionally, each member has their own varied personality, but in spite of that, we all act like one family. I think it’s a great advantage to grow as an organization.

Diversity is also effective, and I think it is important to have a variety of perspectives in order to shed new light on technology.

 

Leveling up my ability to promote


– What are your goals for the future?

First of all, I would like to improve my ability to promote and communicate about products on several levels.
No matter how good the technology is and how good the product is, as long as the customer doesn’t see it or pick it up, it’s just going to be buried.
I want to make the concept and focus clearer and create a website with structure that will make customers want to visit again and again.
The other is to speed up the commercialization of unique technologies. In order to deliver more and more interesting products to our customers, we would like to unleash technologies that are buried not only in Japan but all over the world.
