Next Chapter’s Purpose

Since the mid-1990s, the use of the Internet spread rapidly with US as a forerunner and had a significant impact on the global economy.

Considering the evolution so far, it is exciting to see what the world will look like in the next 30 years, when technologies such as AI, blockchain, and cross- reality will become more prevalent and human life will become more comfortable, while the value of what each individual has to offer will come under even greater scrutiny.

In this context, Japan is currently lagging behind other countries in both globalization and digital transformation. If this trend continues, the gap is expected to widen, and we established Next Chapter with the desire to break the trend.

Our company’s purpose is to provide new value originating from overseas to the people of Japan from the customer’s point of view by identifying market trends and pursuing the essence of the market, free from preconceived notions.
