Investor Comments

Mr. Takanori Oshiba, Fellow, East Ventures

East Ventures invested in the company during its founding phase. I believe that Mr. Yanagisawa is an entrepreneur who can continue to focus on his product for a long time. I expect that he will take his time to create great value without being swayed by the winds and waves.

Mr. Enji Naka, Associate, ANOBAKA

I have been friends with Mr. Yanagisawa, the CEO, for about two years. He has been telling me since then that "social calendars are definitely coming," and I respect him very much for his unwavering commitment to his core beliefs. We are looking for backend engineers to join our team! We are especially looking for backend engineers, so please take a look at our recruitment page!

Mr. Naofumi Tsuchiya, President & CEO, Goodpatch, Inc.

I met Mr. Yanagisawa, the president of pow, through an introduction by Mr. Yanagisawa, the president of Fun Communications, my hometown and a senior in high school. I felt that the company has the potential to solve the problems of calendars with high quality UX, which did not seem to be possible. Although he is still young, he has a strange sense of balance and a strong will, and I think he has great potential as an entrepreneur. I look forward to seeing what kind of startup they will grow into!

Mr. Yasuyoshi Yanagisawa, President and Representative Director, Fun Communications Inc.

I believe that the act of planning is an area with tremendous potential, as it is still poorly tooled in terms of "gathering" and "sharing" information. We hope that by providing users with a new scheduling experience through Schell, it will become a portal for creating the future.

Comment from Mr. Ren Yanagisawa, Representative of pow Inc.

We are very pleased to have such an encouraging group of shareholders joining us.

The realm of the scheduler, which we all use every day, became part of our lives with the advent of smartphones as "calendar apps" and has remained largely unchanged ever since. We use the power of social,Refine SCEL into a product with unparalleled convenience for users.This will redefine the previous scheduler by

We have been steadily polishing our product, and with the funds we have raised this time, we will further strengthen our development system. If you are an engineer or designer who wants to create a product that will take root in the lives of many people, we would like to talk with you.
