Royal Roads University presented a new award as a part of the Global Summit of Leaders last month.

Yoshito Hori received the first ever honour for Global Principled Centred Entrepreneur of the Year, presented by summit organizers League Financial Partners.

Hori is the chairman of Globis Corporation, based out of Tokyo, Japan. He flew in for the summit to address the young entrepreneurs taking part in the event. Globis Corporation is a management school in Japan with the largest venture capital fund.

Through his work Hori is also leading the dialogue surrounding Japan’s reconstruction efforts after the earthquake and tsunami in 2011. He has been instrumental in promoting broad perspectives on nuclear power in his country.

 

“He is a true visionary and lives by his values,” co-founder and co-chair of League Emanuel Arruda said in a press release. “It was evident with the work he has done as a father, entrepreneur, community leader and social change agent in Japan.”
