Ryota Nakamura

BizOptimars ,Inc. CEO / Co-Founder

2020-2024 Microsoft MVP for Business Applications I co-founded own company where I was involved in proposing business improvements and education for various industries. Believing that the development of an internal community is the key to business improvement, I established BizOptimars,Inc. in November 2023, a company that boosts in-house production based on an internal community. I'm currently providing various supports aimed at the development of Japanese companies, mainly in the manufacturing industry in the Kansai region. In external communities, I'm active as “Rinatamu”, and while enlightening the Microsoft Power Platform, I have made many presentations with the main theme of making business improvement fun. As a result, in February 2020, I received the Microsoft MVP in the Business Applications department from Microsoft headquarters in US. I'm still actively presenting and disseminating information, and I'm active in a free style that is not limited to Microsoft products.
