MIRAIing contributes to the future as a top leader / innovator producing institution
Uplift society with outstanding leaders and innovators who help build a bright future
Nurture the next generation of pioneers who design and realize an ideal future, unencumbered by stereotypes or failures.
Who we are
What do you imagine when you hear the word "leader?"
Do you imagine someone who is elite, has graduated from a prestigious university, has joined a good company, and gives instructions from the top of the hierarchy?
MIRAIing opposes this image of the 20th century leader.
We believe that the leaders we need in the 21st century, with its many changes, are those who are willing to take on the challenges of solving problems that our society and communities face without having stereotypes or fears of failure.
We redefine a leader of the 21st century = "a challenger who designs and builds an ideal future without being bound by stereotypes or failures, and takes on the challenges of solving problems that societies and communities face."
We will strive to annually nurture 200,000 next-generation leaders around the globe.
MIRAIing is such a leader producing organization in the 21st century.
When I was in elementary school, I visited the developing world for the first time and was begged by a boy of the same age, and I dreamed of creating a world of equal opportunity.
After graduating from university, I sought to put that thought into shape through joining JICA, where I was in charge of infrastructure development and policy formulation on the scale of hundreds of billions of yen, and by using new robot technology through joining SoftBank Robotics.
In the end, I understood that infrastructure, policies, and technology are just tools, and it is important to develop leaders who will use those essential tools to build a bright future.
MIRAIing will produce as many global leaders as possible, right this moment, and contribute to the future.

Introduction of the Founder
CEO & Founder of MIRAIing
Kei worked for international corporation projects in the Middle East at Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) and for the overseas expansion of AI robots at SoftBank.
He also started to provide leader education and career education to students whose learning opportunities were restricted due to the stay-at-home restrictions of the corona virus. In 2021, Kei established MIRAIing Inc. with the passion to nurture the next generation that will create the future.
Since MIRAIing started, we have provided learning opportunities to more than 1,000 future leaders.
Kei holds the Master of Business Administration (MBA) from University of Cambridge & Master of Public Policy from Kyoto University.
He was selected as a Social Change Maker by Nippon Foundation in 2022 and an Ambassador of One Young World Summit in 2014.
His hobbies are running, working out, tennis, and reading books and manga. He also completed the Shikoku pilgrimage route (or Shikoku Henro) by biking.
Today we are entering an era of great uncertainty, and are faced with a whole host of complex problems that were previously unimaginable such as increasing inequality and climate change.
The human resources needed to flourish in such an era are unfortunately not being adequately served by conventional education and the school system, focused as they are on exam preparation and testing.
What is needed instead is learning by doing and real world application.
I am convinced that young people today can learn a lot by repeatedly dealing with challenging social and business issues in teams. Such live application of learning can create the leaders needed for our contemporary world.
The TOPPA program offered by MIRAIing is such a program. It truly enables the creation of future leaders by fostering these real world skills of teamwork and problem solving. I sincerely hope that TOPPA reaches many of the next generation.

"Because I found my company in Israel to create value that reaches around the world, I sympathize with the MIRAIing's mission of and programs.
I was inspired to see how the students were gathering, discussing, and growing together to acquire the leadership to become an active global leader.
We look forward to co-creating value with the next generation of global leaders born from MIRAIing, who will take on social issues from a broad perspective. "
