CORPORATE IDENTITY

Philosophy

At RiskTaker, we believe that people who have taken risks and challenged themselves have changed the world.
We believe that by increasing the number of people who take risks through various activities, we can contribute to accelerating global change and making a better world a reality sooner.

BACKGROUND

Background and how RiskTaker was started

RiskTaker Inc. was established as a corporation in May 2021 as a comprehensive start-up vehicle, under the vision of "increasing the number of people who RiskTake and to accelerate innovative change in the world".

I started my career as an angel investor in 2019 after developing an automated securities trading system and expanding my business in the global financial field, and have made several joint investments with VCs.

Currently, we actively engaged in activities that go beyond investment, such as the forming community for entrepreneurs, monthly pitch events, and sponsoroship for sports athletes, to nurture the growth of entrepreneurs, startups, athletes, and other challengers. In order to eliminate barriers to entry into the global market, I founded RiskTaker with members who has overseas knowledge and networks.

We are committed to identifying the potential of entrepreneurship for the next generation of humanity, and to investing in and accelerating it in a time when technologies for achieving a sustainable society are attracting attention.

What we see in the future

Since ancient times, human beings have accumulated wisdom from many challenges and passed it on to their descendants to weave the present.

Not all of the challenges we take on will be worthy of a good story in the future, but we aim to create a world full of "Risk Takers," those who move the hands of time forward on their own.
