Hiroshi Mikitani explains the startup story of Rakuten

7 Minutes


Mickey Mikitani, chairman and CEO of Rakuten Medical, explains in an interview for the Fortune magazine the personal story about how he decided to participate in the fight against Cancer by investing in the Biotech market.

Since then, Rakuten Medical has been developing new cancer therapies based on Photoimmunotherapy. This innovative technique combines key advantages of antibody-mediated targeting of the cancer cells with laser-activation of a biophysical mechanism that induces rapid cancer cell death.

To explain this revolutionary approach they requested us to make an impactful and comprehensive video from us. Thanks to our scientific and medical animation they could easily visualize and explain their technology and the mechanism of action of the candidate Asp 1929 .

Rakuten Medical aims to commercialize this therapy once it has conducted clinical trials of the therapy on its own and in combination with other medications.
