Logo

The “i” in the logo represents I, people, and innovation.

The most fundamental value of Knowledge Capital is people.
Innovation is generated in an environment where each “i” plays a leading role.
While the cluster of “i”s in different shapes and sizes represents diversity, the row of “i”s depicts the vibrations transmitted by them through their activities.

Core value

At Knowledge Capital, OMOSIROI is our core value. In English, OMOSIROI translates to “interesting ” or “fun,” it equates to something that makes your eyes light up—and indeed this is where the Japanese word has its origins. We plan to bring together people from various fields in an OMOSIROI interface and have find joy in collaborating. Furthermore, we hope to inspire knowledge innovation that brightens society’s future lying before us.
