With millions of dollars in the bank, most people would already be satisfied with life. But serial entrepreneur Shintaro Yamada wanted more than just financial freedom. He wanted to build a company that is truly global. His first shot at global fame was Unoh, a gaming studio founded in 2001 which was sold to Zynga in 2010.
After working at Zynga for 18 months, Yamada took a year-long break and traveled around the world. “While traveling, I thought about what to do next. Mobile commerce comes to mind because there is a chance to go global,” says Yamada. Returning from his travel, Yamada founded Mercari, a mobile marketplace that allows users to sell their second-hand items.
