Oscar Yasser Noriega "Akira"
Serial Tech Entrepreneur in Tokyo, Japan
I am a serial tech entrepreneur born and raised in Mexico. Founded my first company (Atomix.vg) when I was 17 years old.
I started Atomix while still at college doing my major in Computer Science. Atomix then became the largest video game news website and online community in Latin America in 1998 which got acquired in 2010. I became a college drop-out while building this startup.
In 2009, I co-founded my second company called SCLBits, a pioneering digital marketing agency and Lab based in Mexico City that operated from 2009 to 2018. We built this company from the ground up and worked with world class brands like Nike and Telmex, and helped them design their online strategies to navigate the social media and mobile trends. I sold my shares of the company in 2014.
I had a small path as an angel investor and invested in several internet companies in Latin America.
My previous position was as CEO and Co-founder of Pocket Supernova Inc, a mobile software development startup focused in AR and Video technologies that I co-founded in 2013 in Silicon Valley after we got accepted at 500 Startups in Mountain View, CA. The company then operated from Tokyo Japan where we settled for our headquarters from 2013 to 2017. Our most successful product was called PocketVideo, a mobile video editing app that included a suite of tools targeted to young YouTube creators worldwide. PocketVideo ended up being regarded as a mobile ‘Adobe Premiere’
And ranked on the top spots of the App Store for more than 3 years in a row.
I have a strong background in entrepreneurship, startups, innovation, UX, new technologies, business development, strategy, partnerships and project management a with both creative and technical teams in different countries around the world.
As of 2018, I am working as CEO and co-founder of a new company called Wabisabi Design Inc, and focused on AR, VR, 3D Graphics and Game Development.
