Part-time Auditor

Humankind has a dream. The dream to fly in the sky created the aviation industry, which revolutionized our lives. The dream to have a computer which even an individual can use freely created the personal computer industry, and its network is still expanding today’s information society. The dream toward space will eventually create the new commercial satellite industry, so that even a private company can easily utilize space for their businesses. Axelspace has developed the world’s first commercial microsatellite for Weathernews Inc, and the satellite was successfully launched on Nov. 21, 2013.

Like the computer industry, commercial microsatellites will drastically change how we use space. Axelspace is bringing innovation to space ahead of the rest of the world. I am resolved to keep supporting Axelspace, a startup company creating new values with strong passion and will.
