Company Introduction

Make a smile with the power of people and technology to cheer the world

A startup founded in 2014 by Mr. Morikawa, who is also known as the president of LINE, under the vision of “creating video media to expand to the world and delivering power from Japan to the world.” The company develops and operates C CHANNEL, a video service for women. This service is a one-way way way based on the theme of make-up, hair Arange, recipes, etc.The video is characterized by its features. The service target was women aged 20 to 35 years and became recognized as Japan's largest video media for women in a few years since the launch of the service. In the video market that attracts attention against increased speed and capacity, the video market has rapidly gained a number of users and has seen a rapid growth of more than 600 million video views per month in a year and a half since the launch in 2015. We are also actively expanding globally, and we have already released English, Chinese, Thai and Korean versions. “C CHANNEL” for the first three years, receiving many voices for women after life events such as marriage and childbirth, started “mama +” video media for moms. After pre-opening on SNS from January 24, 2018, the number of followers is increasing steadily. In June 2019, the company was adopted by J-Startup and will continue to expand its services and expand overseas.
