My motto is Advancing Society Forward and Improving People’s Lives. My goal is to accomplish that pay it forward to the world through my business endeavors. I believe we are here to serve others, not ourselves, otherwise we would all live alone, on an island somewhere. We share this world together. I am a Global Serial Entrepreneur who enjoys the journey and loves quotes; one of my favorites: "When something is important enough, you do it even if the odds are not in your favor." Elon Musk- My interests are sustainable development goals, future economies, supporting underserved communities, decreasing dependence on non-renewable resources, and wellness initiatives for veterans. My network includes Government officials across the world, former professional sports athletes, venture capitalists, and other extremely successful entrepreneurs. Most of my domain interest in technology lies in Healthcare, AR/VR, IoT, Smart Technologies, Robotics, AI and Machine Learning Right now I serve as a board advisor for tech companies and investment committees. To date, I have started a non-profit, bootstrapped multiple companies and raised capital for others. I am a public speaker and I have spoken on business and personal development at a number of higher profile organizations such as the Silicon Rotary Club and the International Trade Council. I have also made a number of editorial appearances. Currently I mentor on Veterati.com (My Veterati profile can be accessed here in the Link: https://bit.ly/3rnvoK1 ) and Torch.io (not publicly available) - I believe we learn more from our mentees than we do our seniors and peers.

Job title iconChatwork CEO

電気通信大学情報工学科卒業。大学在学中に兄弟でEC studio(現Chatwork株式会社) を2000年に創業。以来、技術を統括するCTOとして多数のサービス開発に携わり、2011年3月にクラウド型ビジネスチャット「Chatwork」を企画しリリース。エンジニアとして開発を主導しながら、事業責任者として会社の主力事業へと育て上げる。2018年6月、代表取締役CEOに就任。2019年9月、東証マザーズへの上場を果たす。第45回「経済界大賞」にて「ベンチャー経営者賞」を受賞。 テックバックグラウンドで技術・プロダクトマネジメント領域が専門。プロダクトが成長していくなかで、50人・100人の壁を越える組織づくり、PMF後の事業スケール、2桁億のエクイティファイナンス、IPOおよびその後の上場企業経営など一通り経験しています。ビジネスとプロダクトをどう融合させていくか、などが得意分野です。 自分の考えや経験をnoteに書いてますので、よければご参照ください https://note.com/cwmasaki/ 現役CEOのため、本業が優先であり定常的なハンズオンへの期待に応えることは難しいと思います。ただ、壁打ち程度であればいつでもウェルカムですし、大きな困難に当たった時などに支援することはできると思います。 ※投資先が増え対応困難になってきたため、新規のエンジェル投資に関しては知人の紹介経由、もしくはメンター/顧問をしている下記コミュニティ経由からのみお話伺っています。 ・日本スタートアップ支援協会 https://www.yumeplanning.jp/ ・StartPass https://startpass.jp/
