Hiroshi Morita

森田 浩史

Having felt a stirring within when coming in contact with the Internet while still in university, he decided to devote his career to the IT industry. While in his 20s, he was posted to client companies, where he spent all of his time developing operations systems for accounting and SCM and the like. After acquiring an MBA, his work underwent a total change, and he found himself involved in collaborative operations at startups in Silicon Valley and Israel. After learning of company ways through business planning, he joined Open Innovation Lab in 2011. He is now supervising a host of Open Innovation Lab projects, such as the Grand Front Osaka urban development that incorporates the world’s first ever social city platform, the Sports & Life Technology Lab with University of Tokyo professor Rekimoto, and demonstration experiments of the Ritsumeikan Moriyama Junior & Senior High School. Having been completely impressed by Portland’s urban planning when visiting there last year, he is currently formulating plans for a more exciting Tokyo in the year 2020 and beyond. He has taught classes such as Social Organization Theory at the Graduate School of Social Sciences, Hitotsubashi University and others elsewhere. He has authored books such as "A Book for Understanding the Environment and Management." And he is taking part in a number of groups such as the Japan Share-Cycle Association and Kyu Tokaido Shinagawa-syuku Syuhen Machidukuri Kyougikai.
