【MISSION】 "Global opportunities for more and more people" We aim to provide an environment that could maximize people’s potentials. It’s not about skills but rather imagination when it comes to people’s potentials, because what you can imagine, you can make it happen. We firmly believe that as you nourish your imagination, surrounding yourself in a global and diverse environment will trigger your sensibility and creativity to ignite and make your life better. This has been Blued's unwavering mission, ever since our foundation in 2012. 【Inbound and Outbound businesses are going to change the society】 Back in 1900, 90% of the means of transportation was horse-drawn carriages on the Fifth Avenue in New York. 13 years later, motor vehicles replaced carriages. In 2010 in Tokyo, while most used to spread newspapers on the trains, we now hold smart phones in our hands. History that lasted hundreds of years could look different in only a couple of years, making people’s lives better and more fulfilling. We are here to create a borderless world and change the society for the better.
