Early on, I saw something very special in RTFKT and realised we have a shared vision of using technology as a way to transform and shape innovation
As a testimony of my ongoing support to disruptive technologies, earlier this year, through my leading venture capital company ‘C Ventures’, I had backed RTFKT, an innovative brand that utilizes next generation technology such as blockchain authentication, NFT, gaming engines and augmented reality to create sneakers and digital artefacts.
Not only was C Ventures one of the top three investors in Asia, but the new capital also helped RTFKT to broaden its team of creators and artists and grow the overall talent pool and business.
Early on, I saw something very special in RTFKT and realized we have a shared vision of using technology as a way to transform and shape innovation. I am very proud that RTFKT has been elevated to the world stage through the acquisition by Nike, and that its high potential has been recognised.
Now, being RTFKT acquired by Nike, it shows and testifies that RTFKT and I share the same vision of using technology as a way to transform and to shape innovation. Advancing or incorporating new technology is one of the fastest ways to stimulate growth, make businesses more competitive and reaching new markets, and definitely something my team and I will keep strongly focusing on next year and beyond.
