Speaker Bio:

Tomohiro Fujita, PhD, graduated from the University of Tokyo, Graduate School of Agriculture and Life Sciences. Throughout his time in university, Fujita was thinking how to create a society based on biotechnology that is necessary to humans. He swore to seek a way to implement biotechnology in society not as a scholar but as a businessman. While learning actual business management at the Strategy Consulting Department in Accenture Japan, he studied the concepts and perspectives of business management that is required in the future bio industry.

He established numerous social problem-solving biotechnology companies, starting with Chitose Laboratory Corp, and grew them. He is looking for a better way to turn cutting-edge biotechnology into businesses and provide them to society.
