Team and community

We’re a team of strategists and storytellers based in Nakameguro, Tokyo.

We purposefully look for people from across different cultural backgrounds, identities, languages, and skills – creating multi-disciplinary teams that are able to approach business problems from multiple perspectives.

We also collaborate with thought leaders and specialists from across our networks, regularly engaging with different communities to enrich our thinking.
