Appointment comment from Ryuji Tokiwagi
AlphaDrive REGION Chief Evangelist and Ryukyu Alphadrive Co-Founder I have been appointed as Chief Strategy Officer (CSO).
AlphaDrive, including Mr. Aso, our representative and long-time ally, is an elite group of members with Japan’s top-class track record, ambition, and know-how as a leading company in new business
development support.

Since I moved to Okinawa in 2014, I have worked as a parallel career practitioner in various parts of Japan to create new businesses, practice open innovation, develop local DX promoters, and develop local exchange bases and players. I have put it in.

In recent years, a trend is emerging to take on the challenge of open innovation and utilize start-up companies, centering on the efforts of the Japanese government, local governments, local leading traditional companies, and companies that possess technology.
I love the history and culture of the region and the people who live there. Through our activities at AlphaDrive, we will promote an understanding and respect for the local community based on deep love and experience, robust and practical support, and the creation of new businesses, something that a large-scale capital consulting firm cannot do. Thank you for your continued support and guidance.
