About the investor
Tatsuro Shimada (Tatsu) is the co-founder of the Tokyo-based mobile Q&A app Connehito Inc., created for female users centered around childcare. During the eight years of his entrepreneurial journey as CTO, Tatsuro and his team have grown the company up to 7 million users. Thus, it is no wonder that in 2016 the company was acquired by the Japanese telecom giant, KDDI.
After the exit, Tatsu has been an active angel investor, traveling across the globe and meeting some of the most ambitious founders. He has invested in more than 20 companies worldwide, ranging from a startup providing efficient ambulance service in Nairobi, Kenya, to a platform offering smart web analytical tools in Helsinki, Finland. You can read more this in his blog.
