What does your startup do?
Good Luck 3 is developing a game-centric social platform called LuckyMe using blockchain technology. We are also developing smartphone content including, Touch! Gudetama -Extreme soy sauce- and Aerial Legends. Additionally, we are getting into the movie business with our new drama series, Method of Life.
What problem are you trying to solve?
We are currently developing LuckyMe, which will make gamer-first internet-media a reality. Previously, if a gamer wanted to find information about a game they had to rely on generic search results. However, those results do not always display the most useful information. This creates a big gap between gamers and the information they want to find. LuckyMe removes this barrier and links gamers with the best information available. It evaluates articles that were created specifically for the gaming community, and even goes so far as to assess the article’s quality. LuckyMe can also navigate past common SEO traps that are used to attract customers, so we can give gamers access to the exact content they are looking to find.
Why did you choose Fukuoka?
First, it is important to mention that this is my hometown. But also, I find that both the living and working environments in Fukuoka are good. This helps our projects to progress smoothly. I also really enjoy Fukuoka’s rich natural elements such as the mountains and beaches.
What do you think about Fukuoka's startup community?
The city is a good size and a nice fit for the work we do at Good Luck 3. The industry, government, and academic communities all communicate with each other and work collaboratively.
How has Fukuoka City helped your startup?
Fukuoka city is very supportive. They are especially helpful for companies who want to establish themselves overseas. If a startup needs help with something like getting in touch with potential investors or business partners, the city can be a great resource.
Do you have advice for people considering doing a startup in Fukuoka? Anything you wish you’d known before starting your company here?
