Born in 1967 in Hamamatsu City, Shizuoka Prefecture, lives in Silicon Valley, California, USA. Aiming to establish a support system for medical equipment venture entrepreneurs who have not yet taken root in Japan, he travels back and forth between Japan and the United States for the realization of the system.
Based on a doctor’s experience for nine years, he has been involved in R&D, animal experiments, clinical trials, etc. of more than 200 medical device ventures in the United States for 16 years at Stanford University after traveling to the United States in 2001. Mr. Ikeno who knows both issues on medical problems in Japan and cutting edge medical equipment venture in the United States has great expectations.
Venture capital with abundant experience and insight understands the business model of venture companies, accelerates the realization and commercialization of excellent ideas, and provides the power to create even more valuable ideas to the world. Mr. Ikeno continues to challenge in order to form the “Japanese version” of the ecosystem functioning in the United States.
As he travels back and forth between Japan and the United States, one of his pleasures is to taste his favorite ramen for a brief break.
