ADVISER

Special Visionary KSK

Keisuke Honda

Professional soccer player, MIT ‘s first Japanese athlete special researcher. KSK ANGEL FUND founder. Now Do Inc. Representative Director.

My reason for acquiring ALI’s shares is that the company is a very good team, I find the development of ALI agreeable, and I share the company’s vision to improve the world through drone technology. There are three major problems to be solved by drones; First, there are many unpaved roads in developing countries such as Cambodia and Uganda, both of which hold football clubs I am involved with, so we will solve the logistical problems with drone-based solutions. Second is to provide internet connections to people in developing countries to improve the level of education through the provision of correct information. Third, is to build a safer society by using drone surveillance systems. There are various applications, but the technology surrounding the drone is dramatically improving year by year, so we can look forward to further development in the future.
