Takaho Iwasaki is the founder and CEO of Hawaii-based MajiConnection. A native of Japan, Takaho identified gaps that hindered cross-border business and technology exchange opportunities between Japan and the U.S., specifically Hawaii. So upon completion of her MBA at the University of Hawaii at Manoa, she started her own company, MajiConnection to help SMEs and startups in Japan and Hawaii connect to explore innovation-driven, tech-based projects. Before establishing her career in the U.S, she built her sales chops at Fuji Television in Tokyo and her family business in Kagoshima, Japan. Takaho is also the brains behind “Island Innovation Demo Day”, the first of its kind in Hawaii which showcases Japanese and Hawaii startups bringing about innovative solutions to solve “island problems”. https://www.majiconnection.com/
