CEO, Asian Bridge Inc.
Kanae is the CEO of Asian Bridge Inc., an e-commerce company based in Tokyo that seeks to deliver Japanese products across Asia through the power of the internet. Kanae helps her client organizations grow their business through logistics services that are low in cost — and risk.
Kanae was born in Taiwan and pursued her education in Japan. After getting her master’s degree from Waseda University in 2004, she joined the Recruit Group. In 2010, she left Recruit to pursue her childhood dream — to build the connection between Taiwan and Japan through fostering logistics — which has grown and become the Asian Bridge corporation today.
In 2015, Kanae initiated a one-stop service to support the e-commerce industry. And in 2017, she developed a cloud-based overseas sales system, BUMB, a cross-border e-commerce service designed to help Japanese companies sell their products without establishing their headquarters overseas. Kanae is of the view that though logistics networks are not yet perfect, they will evolve greatly in the coming years. By growing and expanding Asian Bridge, she hopes to introduce more Japanese products to people across Asia.
“We are committed to helping Japanese companies sell their products without establishing their headquarters overseas. Though logistics networks are not yet perfect, they will evolve greatly in the coming years. And we’re ready to embrace this disruption to grow and expand our business.”
