There are people who are doing their best in good faith to improve society,
who are living to help others'happiness,
and who live to protect the earth.
There will be such a time;
when your emotion runs and you can’t think objectively,
or when you run fast every day and you can't build new products/services from a different perspective.
That is just MOTTAINAI not only for you,
but for the best society and future you are aiming for.
We are here to share the same vision as yours
and to realize a wonderful society together.
Sharing the same goals and thoughts,
We run a business in parallel together
to co-create and maximize its society impact.
Because we just want to create a better world.
This is the Vision of Be Think Partner.
- She was touched by the speech given by Sevan Suzuki (Canadian environmental activist) at the Earth Summit in Rio de Janeiro. Sevan was a 12-year-old girl of the same age as her at that time but she was already seeing the world's problems and asking the world not to fight or destroy the environment.
- As she worked in an NGO in India, she realized that social missions and vision will not be achieved without business management and then entered a MBA course to study business administration.
- She studied social businesses such as social enterprises, NPO’s business, microfinance, and fair trade, and summarized them as a thesis. After MBA graduation, she worked for a product planning position at MISUMI Group Inc, and then joined a start-up and launched a new business. She also worked at OMRON Healthcare for 9 years and experienced global business as a product manager of medical equipment.
- She decided to start-up her own business and left her job. Traveled in Thailand, Vietnam and other areas to think about the vision and services of own business. Coming back to Japan, she started her own business under the theme of "Social business"
