■Former shareholder comments
Full Commit Partners Representative Partner Yudai Yamada
The first time we met was on February 20, 2019.
Let’s go out for drinks in two days, talk about our dreams, and do something together! and shook hands. I was really drawn to Mr. Tanabe’s personality.
We worked together for three months to come up with a business plan and made a start-up investment on May 30, 2019. I am very happy that GREEN SPOON, with which I have shared so many irreplaceable memories since I was just starting out, is now joining forces with one of Japan’s leading companies. I would like to continue to support you as a supporter.
I love everyone at GREEN SPOON! Thank you for your continued support! Akatsuki Co., Ltd. Director / Akatsuki Ventures Co., Ltd.
Representative Director Kazuhiko Ishikura
It’s been about 4 years since I invested in this company because I sympathized with its vision of helping people live a life where they can continue to love themselves through food experiences.
Although there were many difficult times, the entire team remained committed to delivering the best food, and the thoughts of everyone who continued to fight have reached many GREEN SPOON users. I am truly grateful that I was able to meet and work with a wonderful company and the best products.
I believe that this participation in the Glico Group is an
epoch-making deal in terms of M&A between large companies and startups in the future, as we will receive investment and grow together before engaging in M&A.
Please continue to create even more wonderful products!
Thank you for the exciting experience! As a fan of GREEN SPOON, I will continue to support them!
BREW Co., Ltd. Representative Director and President Takamiki Ohara When we invested in GREEN SPOON, it was a start-up venture with few members and no regular weekly company-wide meetings, which are now commonplace.
Fast forward four years later, and as I moved beyond the framework of an outside shareholder and worked together to create the business as an insider, the company changed rapidly, and as the number of trusted colleagues increased, the things I was able to do grew as well. , we are now able to deliver GREEN SPOON to many people.
I think we will continue to evolve so that as many people as possible can experience the idea of ​​“living a life where you can continue to love yourself,” and we will always support you.
