Management Philosophy

Exciting manufacturing will energize the world

Enmono Co., Ltd. was founded in Shinbashi, Tokyo on November 11, 2009 by Miki from Fujitsu and Utsunomiya from Suzuki, with the origin of the company name "Manufacturing with the connection of people". The management philosophy is "Exciting manufacturing will energize the world." For mass production and mass consumption, we advocate "Micro Manufacturing ®" to become a manufacturer of the town factory itself using social networks and cloud funding, and develop and innovate our own products through dialogue through VR and mindfulness. We are developing our own product development support and innovation creation support business based on the "True Innovation®" theory that we have created.

As a result, Metaverse (VR
) Became aware of the possibility of expanding to businesses other than games, and began to support zenschool graduates to start businesses using Metaverse (VR).

Representative Director: Koji Miki

After graduating from Meiji Gakuin University, he joined Fujitsu Limited and was assigned to the Overseas Sales Department.
After that, he studied abroad at Keio University and Fujisawa Campus (SFC) at his own expense to study management strategies using the Internet. After earning a master's degree in policy and media from the same school, he went on to a doctoral course and joined a small and medium-sized manufacturing support venture for research, but due to his busy work, he did not get a doctoral degree and retired from the doctoral course. The company has grown to become the largest manufacturing portal site in Japan, served as an IT officer, and then restructured due to business deterioration.
Although he suffers from mild depression due to the shock of restructuring, he started zazen every morning at home to take care of his own mind, and after that, he experienced the stability of his mind and the creation of various business ideas by himself. We envision a zen school for small and medium-sized enterprises that develops their own products and applies them to new businesses. 2009 Independently started enmono Co., Ltd. in order to spread the concept of "micro-manufacturing" that anyone can become a manufacturer. In June 2018, " True Innovation " was published, which summarizes the achievements so far. For a detailed career, please see the career details .

Therefore, he was engaged in sales support such as selection of prototype manufacturers and parts procurement as a manager in charge of production technology and procurement.
