Since childhood, SeungWoo Lee has pondered questions about society and social responsibility. Through this curiosity he turned toward the firefighter community in Korea and found a way to
help society acknowledge and remember firefighters in his social enterprise, REO. His company re-purposes firefighter suits into everyday clothing for consumers, with profits benefiting firefighters in need. Lee hopes to transform the way people view and express gratitude towards these unsung heroes.

With his desire to improve sports education and leadership skills among coaches, Yusuke Kimura created sharetr.inc, an online platform used for nationwide sports leaders to share best practices and teaching methods. Crediting his team for the success of his business, he stresses the importance of building trust and respect, building a community and striving to bring value to society. Currently, sharetr.inc focuses solely on football (soccer), but Kimura’s vision is to expand this service to all sports as well as provide support at the 2020 Olympic Games.
