Recap: HENNGE Talks! Episode 2— HENNGE Culture in a Nutshell.
We hope you are doing well and staying safe. Last week, on June 18, we held our second episode of HENNGE Talks! — HENNGE Culture In a Nutshell. We were joined by our CEO and CTO, Kazuhiro “The Kimono Guy” Ogura himself.
In this episode, we took a trip down memory lane and got a glimpse of how HENNGE came to be. Starting from when he was a kid making video games for himself, to a university student establishing his own company, Ogura san shared with us the values he believes in as a technology lover and as the CEO/CTO of a company.
“The world is becoming more unstable and changing. In this kind of world and environment, the only way to survive is to transform yourself.” — Ogura Kazuhiro
