Creating a World of Opportunity for Dreamers
10 years ago, olympic sailor Akira Ishibashi was gathering funds to compete in the Beijing Olympics by selling T-shirts.
We recognized that many athletes must have given up on their dream from the grueling task of gathering funds.
An idea arose after watching Hanyu, a figure skater, have fans throw Winnie the Poo dolls onto the ice post-performance.
The solution we bring is to reward athletes through gifting and engagement from the fans.
