Kenji Hayashi - Co-President, FoundingBase

While in university, Hayashi did research on how to use community as means to solve social issues and visited regional communities throughout Japan. While spending time with town employees in Tsuwano, Shimane Prefecture, he decided to create a system to encourage young people to return to regional areas to prevent their decline. With Takashi Sasaki, he launched a program that enlists young people as aide-de-camps to the head of local governments for a fixed period. At the same time, he worked for Ashoka Japan’s office as a secretariat and program assistant. In February 2012, he launched FoundingBase with Sasaki and became the Co-President. He is a graduate of Keio University, Faculty of Policy Management.
