Morikawa Akira left Line in April, and now he’s back to square one with a video platform startup that might just shush the haters.
After growing Line into a global phenomenon, Akira Morikawa is ready to start from scratch.
Akira Morikawa, who oversaw Line's growth into an international messaging juggernaut, will pass the torch in March.
Line Creators Market now has 270,000 sticker creators from 145 countries, with the top ten sticker sets averaging more than $300,000 in sales each.
Stickers are certainly not frivolous. They're a multi-million-dollar industry, and this founder plans to take advantage of it with 'stickers-as-a-service'.
