In 2020, I founded Firstcard, Banking for college students, to help students financially who are our future.
Before starting Firstcard, I founded my first company iTank in 2007 when I was a college student in Japan. iTank became the premier/go-to online platform for students to seek out internship opportunities. In 2015, the HR-Tech startup was acquired by En Japan, a publicly traded, human resource company.
Since I moved to the US in 2017, I have invested in over 30 startups such as Substack, Oxygen, Bolt, and Carta.
I'm also a father of 4 kids. Martial arts has been my life passion, and I’m an competitive kickboxer.
