About The Social


The origins of The Social


group photo

The foundation of The Social stems from experiences in planning and managing the world's largest social entrepreneurship competition. While producing events in countries such as Japan, China, Malaysia, the United States, and the United Kingdom, We gained expertise in areas such as planning, marketing, and operations. Through these experiences, We had the opportunity to connect with over 10,000 students, companies, judges, mentors, and more from Japan and around the world. Many of the students we spent time with have since launched entrepreneurial ventures and are active in Japan and globally. Following their entrepreneurial journeys, we encountered numerous requests for assistance, such as lacking operational skills, seeking marketing support, or facing financial constraints. As time passed, the desire to support their needs grew stronger, leading to the establishment of The Social—a company dedicated to supporting individuals, businesses, and entrepreneurs.

The Social originated from the voices of students.

During my student years, I took on challenges such as volunteering and organizing events. However, within these experiences, I encountered the question of 'Who am I striving for, and for what purpose?' This prompted me to reassess myself. It was then that I discovered The Social and was drawn to its mission of 'Creating an opportunity to take action.' Joining the team, I engage in devising marketing strategies to provide employment opportunities for young people and creating mechanisms that can have an impact on society. Every aspect of my involvement with The Social is new to me, and I recognize that there is much to learn as a leader. However, believing that every experience, including failures, inevitably contributes to personal growth, I aspire to become a leader who can move people's hearts and contribute to changing society through The Social in the future.

“I want to acquire the power to change the world.”

Marketing & Design


Having lacked exceptional skills despite the desire to create something from scratch during my student years, I faced repeated despair in international cooperation, feeling unable to accomplish anything. It was during such times that I encountered The Social. Acknowledging the awareness of lacking "confidence" and "skills," I was moved by The Social's belief that "anyone can grow with the opportunity to challenge themselves." When joining the team, I was welcomed with the words, "Daiki, we want you to create a breakthrough." Carrying those words in my heart, I am committed to continuing the challenge to build a society where everyone can realize their dreams and create truly valuable employment opportunities.

“I want to create a world where no one has to give up on their dreams.”
