While he was a sophomore in university, Taguchi saw a video of children in developing countries suffering from malnutrition. It was this moment that inspired him to create a business that solves issues of poverty in developing countries. At the age of 25, Taguchi founded his own business. With a focus on impactful business models, his work centers around the theme of saving as many as possible who suffer from poverty. He is currently promoting 9 social businesses including a share house that promotes friendship among foreigners and an organic herb tea business for mothers.
