CEO Interview

CEO: Yuka Shigeno


Born in Aomori Japan, an apple town.She started her career as a dental hygienist and a nail artist in Australia (2014 Australian Nail Award Pro General Champion), and after participating in the launch of Cafe in Osaka, she founded her own Asian sweets brand. she moved to Singapore from 2019, worked as a F & B brand development for Japanese and Singaporean companies, as a Japanese food buyer, and experienced PR for IT startups. She has experience in entrepreneurship, employment and volunteering at home and abroad.


After leaving Aomori Japan and getting a job, I wanted to be involved in local revitalization, but when I was looking for ways to contribute to the local community from overseas, the outbreak of the corona virus prevented me from doing that. I am convinced that if I form a team, I can do business related to regional revitalization even if I live overseas because the world has shifted to remote work and the team I participated in with the IT startup companies are scattered all over the world. I don’t think this part is needed but I’m not clear what they are trying to convey.

appccyle vision
