Kyulux regretfully informs that Akira Minakuchi, a director and founder, passed away on September 30, 2023

Mr. Minakuchi has consistently supported the company’s management as CFO since its founding. Leveraging his long track record and experience in the finance industry, he supported the financing necessary to lead our company, a startup company originating from Kyushu University, to success. Mr Minakuchi worked hard to support the development and commercialization of Kyulux’s technology.

We all inherit his aspirations from the time of our founding and great contribution to realize Kyulux as a business company.

We would like to express our deep gratitude for all the wishes and condolences, and we hope Mr. Minakuchi will be remembered as a splendid venture capitalist and a good friend.
