Takashi “Dr. Taka” Kiyoizumi, success coach and certified body language trainer


My years of experience as an angel investor and entrepreneur have helped me develop a deep understanding of the unique challenges and obstacles associated with running a business. I have been on both sides of the table as a funding seeker and a venture investor. My experience and business acumen have helped me successfully negotiate over 25 deals, raise over $180 million as a founding CEO of MediciNova Inc., and invest in ventures with over 30% annual returns.


I developed the PITCH & SCORE! program to help you achieve similar success. As your coach, I will guide you to score your goals. My extensive knowledge and experience culminate in this result-oriented coaching program that will help you develop the skills you need in order to “pitch and score!


Why wait? Let’s start your training today!
