About KYOKO

I founded a start-up business in Singapore in 2015 April and launched the beta version of new service in the Web App, Android, and iOS in the early 2016.
I am looking for buddies to grow the business in the after-launch phase.

Here are the features of our business.
1. The service is a new smart media platform for destination marketing, offering real time deals to 2bn international travelers.
2. Will be the world leading company to own 2bn user behavior data of high value customer segment.
3. In 10 years, the market will be 4bn user base.

To reach the current point, for several years, I ran a digital marketing solution business which offers wide varieties of products and services from marketing strategy planning service, developing digital contents streaming system, online promotion service, digital contents creation, and feedback services, etc. for client businesses.

Prior to founding my own business, I experienced working business development for an Intel Capital portfolio venture company, which sought to create a major IPTV (Internet TV Broadcasting Service) business in Japan.
Before involved in venture business, I developed her career as business strategy consult for major global companies under PWC and IBM umbrellas. Especially through IBM project experiences, I gained management skills for IT system development and service delivery as well as international project management.
I was involved in system implementation projects for the Japan’s largest international airport and the Japan’s major airline company, which gives me deep knowledge of travel industry market and business. I have traveled more than 30 countries in my life.

-Operation Director at an Intel Capital Portfolio Start-up Company (2007-2008)
-Managing Consultant, IBM Business Consulting Service Co.,  (2003-2007)
-Senior Consultant, Price Water house Coopers Business Consulting Co., (2000-2003)
-Marketing and Sales, IAMS Japan Co., Tokyo Japan and Dayton, OH, USA (1995-1998)

My academic backgrounds are:
-Master of Business Administration, May 2000
University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign, Illinois, USA.
Concentration: Marketing / International Business / Corporate Strategy
-Doctor of Veterinary Medicine, March 1995 (Japan’s federal certified D.V.M)
