Takashi Masuda was born in Tokyo. He worked for a semiconductor company for ten years, then he thought that his knowledge of semiconductors could be applied to completely different fields such as the dyeing industry. So, he established a dyeing company with his friends. At the same time, Takashi moved to university to further research semiconductors. He is also currently working for a company that connects society and researchers. Takashi Masuda combined these three different roles to organize a new type of community engagement project called ‘ArtTech’.
