Introduction of The Management Team
After leaving a major telecommunications company, he entered the creative field, which had always been his dream. Since 2008, he has been trying to utilise the potential of creators outside of the existing market. He has achieved success in all scenes and established several corporations that handle various content production, advertising services, and service development, from hardware to games, animation, films, and so on. In 2018, he established HIKKY, which specializes in the metaverse business, and has been organizing the Virtual Market, which has been visited by more than one million people, setting a Guinness World Record™. Based on the industry's largest number of companies' metaverse commercialization achievements, provides metaverse solutions such as market entry consulting, VR space content production, and real-life linked service development. Also provides Vket Cloud, a completely original metaverse development engine that runs on a web browser.
The demand for VR is growing rapidly all over the world, and HIKKY has provided many groundbreaking services using VR since its establishment. In the process, we have developed new markets with a new generation of creators who use VR as a platform for expression, and we have promoted XR business outside the VR field by utilizing our accumulated technology and know-how. All of these were challenging endeavors with virtually no precedent, but we have now grown to the point where we are sought after both in Japan and overseas. We feel that this is the result of the support of our wonderful creators, our powerful staff and our understanding partner corporations. We are still a newborn company, and we will continue to reflect and improve step by step, but we will do our best to create a dreamlike world and new values together with you all.
