YUKAWA Kana founded the community with the idea: the new lifestyle to change society.
Over the decades, humankind has worked together hand in hand to fight off attacks like Ice ages or Pestilence.
Humans had always helped one another in tribes or groups, so no individual was left behind.
But our environment has changed; now we live in a world where we evaluate people by their "uniqueness" or the "advantages" we can gain from them.
All aspects are comparisons of one another, and we need to compete with each other to be recognized.
YUKAWA Kana turns this practice the opposite way, with her design of “Team building Configured to Weakness.”
This idea is exactly what humanity has proven for many years;
this might be the light to guide us through the hardships we are to face shortly.

YUKAWA Kana was deeply committed to establishing Yahoo! Japan during her university days. Through her working experience with unique colleagues such as SON Taizo she realized the importance of team power. Most people think a great team is a pack of superheroes and talents. However, is it really true? After resigning from the growing company, she moved to Kobe as she found a similar atmosphere to a Spanish city where she had spent over 10 years. There she eventually discovered her principle which gives her wisdom and courage to thrive in the rapidly changing society.
