Co-Founder and CEO of CROSS FIELDS:
I operate a program called Ryushoku.
We send Japanese corporate volunteers to emerging countries in Asia to work at NPOs or social enterprises for a few months to solve social issues.
I learned to put society ahead of corporate endeavors.
It was a remarkable point, especially coming from NEC.
I was truly impressed by how much thought NEC puts into society.
In addition, by taking advantage of the skills of NEC employees, the program supports entrepreneurs in solving social issues.
In Nagai City, Yamagata Prefecture, our employees apply their marketing skills to promote a project in which nursery items are made using local materials.

Sake made by rice harvested from the field has widened the circle of paddy making.
