Changing the World by Automating Chat

A SaaS start-up that develops the no-code chat AI platform "kuzen".While there is a growing need for companies to use chatbots to complete a variety of internal and external communications, there have been no no-code tools that can develop, maintain, and operate highly functional chatbots without relying on system vendors.By providing "kuzen," a no-code tool with all the functions necessary for operation in large enterprises, including complex scenario creation, data analysis, and custom DB integration, we aim to create innovative ways of working.



Based on experience at the University of Tokyo's "Entrepreneur Dojo," investment funds and IT consultancy, Shogo Ota and Kota Shirakura, both graduates from the University of Tokyo, founded the company with the determination to create a globally active startup in the IT field from Japan, seizing the timing of the change in communication tools, chat in particular.


Strengths of kuzen include: a track record of over 200 large corporation deployments; the only chatbot tool that provides a wide variety of functions required by enterprise customers with no code; a patented proprietary scenario creation algorithm; the ability to build a variety of dialogue interfaces to suit customer needs; and the flexibility to integrate with external systems.
