I’ve worked fervently for the past 15 years to start new IT-related venture companies. In 2002 I founded GungHo, one of Japan’s most successful online gaming companies, and our flagship game Puzzle & Dragons is the world’s top grossing app for iOS and Android, making more than $100M in monthly revenues. With Movida Japan, a seed accelerator I founded in 2009, we aim to significantly boost the venture ecosystem in East Asia by 2030. I also serve as an Advisor at SoftBank, a Japanese Telecom and IT conglomerate with more than 1300 subsidiaries and affiliates worldwide, founded and led by my brother Masayoshi Son. I am really looking forward to attending Slush to experience the region’s vibrant gaming and startup scene for myself.
