WAOJE (World Association of Overseas Japanese Entrepreneurs) has awarded AnyMind Group as the runner-up in the WAOJE Tokyo Global Business Awards - recognizing the three-year-old company as one of the fastest-growing businesses outside of Japan.
Kosuke Sogo, CEO and co-founder of AnyMind Group, who received the award and participated in a panel discussion at the event, said: "This award is a testament to our growth in the past few years, as our expansion across three industries, 11 markets and over 450 people from more than 20 nationalities, has enabled us to empower professionals, businesses and industries to achieve better growth through the use of technology."
The top prize was awarded to Tokyo Stock Exchange-listed istyle inc, a beauty care portal and advertising company with a global portfolio of brands, including @cosme, Hermo and MakeupAlley, and more.
Speaking as part of a panel on business expansion, Kosuke Sogo shared more about AnyMind Group's expansion strategy from a single office in Singapore to an Asia-wide presence, along with topics across M&A, fundraising, and tips on localization strategy.
With recent announcements in the digital-out-of-home advertising and influencer marketing spaces, there is much excitement for what AnyMind Group and its companies will bring to its various industries moving forward.
