OUR STORY

OUR STORY
Miki was born to a family full of entrepreneurs, ironworks, flower arrangement school, and semiconductor packaging. Since her childhood, she always wanted to create something new between Japan and overseas and make the communities happier. Without deciding what to pursue, she started working for a company as a liaison of technology transactions after getting her law degree in Japan in 1998.
Since then, she realized slowing down the economy and losing the vitality of her mother country, Japan. Miki worked very hard to connect Japanese companies and technologies from overseas. However, the situation of her loving country is getting worse, she felt. She asked the reasons to herself, her friends and experts, for years and years. She learned the fact that Japan is losing its bridges to the world through her work. Therefore, Miki decided to build new bridges that will reconnect Japan and overseas by herself through her business. One day, she learned the fact that Japan was in an extreme shortage of engineers. She immediately felt that it would be great if she could bridge the international engineers and Japan, which is Uprithm.
As of March 2020, we have built connections with Taiwan and India.
