There was a time when startup companies in Japan are struggling to grow, because of the lack of support from the public. The idea to create a company with innovative objectives is unpopular in Japan, but everything changed after William Saito introduced the potential of the industry to a lot of Japanese people. William Saito is a tech entrepreneur, and he moved to Japan back in the year 2004. Before his migration to the Asian country, he used to manage his businesses in the United States. During his early years in the field of computers, he developed the I/O Software which displays English and Japanese languages interchangeably throughout the monitor screen. It provided convenience to American and Japanese computer engineers who are working together for a project, and Microsoft later bought the technology.
The decision to move to Japan came in 2004 when he realized that the country would need to go under a massive reform when it comes to empowering the youth about startups. He wanted a Japanese to develop the next Facebook, and so he started to inspire the youth and encouraged them to do something great. While he was staying in Japan, William Saito established a business called the Creative Lounge Mov. It is a facility similar to an office where Japanese people could go freely inside and use their computers to do their projects. William Saito believes that encouraging the youth to do their projects in a safe and convenient place would give birth to more ideas that could help the society someday.
Aside from managing the Creative Lounge Mov, William Saito is also visiting the major cities across the country to host conferences and seminars about the importance of engaging in startup businesses. He claimed that the Japanese people tend to provide more attention to their infrastructure projects and office jobs, but there is a growing number of Japanese individuals who are looking at the startup industry as the next big thing in the country. William Saito and a group of Japanese entrepreneurs are discussing the possibility of establishing new startups that would serve as a guide for the public.
