"Before this program I never thought of my mission because I've been working on things for 7 years. My mentor made me realize that my mission can be bigger than just finding the right people. She helped me understand how unique my company is and how it can be transformed into something global to socially empower and impact communities."

Keiko Koda is the founder and CEO of AsMama Inc., a platform that allows parents to support each other by sharing childcare responsibilities within a network or community.

The system gives members the flexibility to pursue their self-realization, such as careers and volunteer service, regardless of their life stage. Since its inception in April 2013, more than 30,000 have taken advantage of AsMama's services.

Keiko previously served as the public relations senior manager with Ngi Group, Inc., and has worked with NIFTY Corporation, an Internet service provider.
