CEO Message

For Our Next Generations

In October 2017,
ZENKIGEN Inc. was founded under the vision of “contributing to the creation of a society through technology where people and companies can fully embody themselves”.
The term Zenkigen is a Zen Buddhism’s word, to the best and beyond one’s ability.
Given that I live to the best and beyond my ability more than anyone,
I strongly believe that a society where every one of us is living to the best of their ability is vibrant. And it would be more beautiful when children grows up looking up to adult who is living his best and beyond his ability.

We want to pass on such a society to the next generation.
For Our Next Generations
This is our founding spirit.

Although the power of one company is insignificant,
it is still our vision to “contribute to the creation of a society through technology where people and companies can fully embody themselves” by leading by example.
We will make every effort to make this possible.
