GAIAX IS A RESPONSIBILITY-DRIVEN COMMUNITY THAT EMPOWERS PEOPLE TO CONNECT
EMPOWERING THE PEOPLE TO CONNECT
Gaiax aims at empowering the people to create meaningful connections that never existed before. With the spread of the internet and internet-based technology, it has become possible to interact with people we have never met. In addition to exchanging information, we are now able to collaborate on a global scale and share resources with unprecedented efficiency. Our mission is to empower such connections to spread across borders, cultures and generations and for our global society to become eventually whole.
Gaiax derives its name from Gaia theory that believes our planet to be one living entity with all organisms interconnecting and interacting with each other thus forming a synergetic and self-regulating ecosystem that maintains and perpetuates the conditions for life. Only connected can we ensure our world to be whole and our future bright.
We do not narrow our perspective just to ourselves or our company but rather always try to calibrate our thinking based on the society as a whole. Respectively, we do not consider issues in the world to be someone else’s affair but regard them as our own and always aim at broadening the range of our responsibility.
We believe in the power of individuality and leadership but try to involve as many people as we can when trying to solve problems and initiate movements. Together, we can sustain and enrich our lives and enjoy a harmonious unity with our planet.
Gaiax is transparent to a fault. We not only make all of our information public but also have no defined borders as a company, choosing to operate as a community with members from both inside and outside of the company. Our flat organizational structure allows a complete freedom in not only deciding where, when and how to work but also what to work on.
At Gaiax, work is not something you are given but something you create for yourself. Our community members are free to choose what to work on, how much to be involved, what goals to achieve and how to be evaluated. We look for problems, accept responsibility for them and work towards finding solutions by inspiring, involving, daring and leading.
We always dream big. By providing a stimulating environment, our accumulated knowledge base and a strong peer support we invite our community members to dare new ventures and maximize on their potential. Lets celebrate both success and failure together and treasure our curiosity and thirst for perpetual innovation.
We are constantly aware of the impact that our actions have on society and environment. While focusing on solving global issues through out business solutions and entrepreneurial endeavors, we strive to create and sustain our community in a way that respects diversity and allows each individual to play an active role in all our initiatives.
DREAM IT. THEN DO IT.
Gaiax has a unique “Carve-out option” system that allows not only ownership of business but also ownership of capital. Upon an application by a business division leader, the division can be made into a subsidiary company, giving all its members a large stock option of up to 50% of all shares. The company will also be given the authority to make capital policy decisions, including raising funds from the outside. We strongly believe that promoting ownership will lead to increased profits for the entire Gaiax group. More than 4 companies have already carved-out using this system including Appbank and adish that went public in 2015 and 2020 respectively.
In addition to the carve-out option system, Gaiax operates as a startup studio supporting early seed business ideas with not only capital but also space, staff and back office support. Read more about Gaiax STARTUP STUDIO here.

WHERE WE PLAY
To promote the design of a work style based on individual life choices and circumstances, we have turned our new headquarters Nagatacho GRiD into a shared community space to not only use it as a playground for various activities but to also share common resources with efficiency and sustainability in mind.
Nagatacho GRiD has multiple event venues where we host online and offline meetups, pitch nights, workshops, conferences, movie screenings, yoga classes, knitting circles and board game competitions. You can check our upcoming events here. The facility also accommodates several co-working spaces and lounges, shared offices and meeting rooms, shared kitchen, cafe and a rooftop where we screen social documentaries in summer and enjoy hot coffee breaks in winter. Shared spaces are available for free use to all Gaiax STARTUP STUDIO members.
Join Gaiax Community to follow our events and receive access to the many opportunities for collaboration and investments.
