Whether it’s international boundaries, or boundaries between end clients and partners, field offices and headquarters, or employees and management, Koeerü works to transcend barriers and data silos.
Koeerü’s platforms work towards solving inefficiencies in the process of collecting, analyzing, and using VOC data, which make competitive solutions less cost-effective.
Koeerü works to overcome asymmetries that inhibit the democratization of data, such as biases towards certain types of users or platforms that assume a high level of data literacy.
Michael has always been interested in crossing borders. From a childhood in Arizona, USA, spent pouring over National Geographic magazines, to a degree in International Relations at the University of Southern California, his first act after leaving school was to move to Japan.
Through a career in English and university education, as well as experiences in marketing technology and a life spent overseas, he co-founded Koeerü Inc. in 2021 in the belief that technology can help overcome barriers in cross-cultural communication and in understanding the voices of minorities.
As CEO of the company, he strives to design customer data platforms that empower the unvoiced through self-motivation and solve social issues through better understanding.
