Happy 3rd Year Anniversary!

Today, SOPHOLA has managed to celebrate its third anniversary!
I strongly feel my immaturity and inadequacy as a person in every aspect, as well as my gratitude to those who have supported us.

I won’t be able to give you a detailed review of the numbers until the financial statements are completed.
However, here is a simple brief:
Revenue BVF: 66% (first time since starting the business that we missed the budget by a large margin)
Revenue YoY: 137%.
The results were as follows. I was depressed and troubled many times due to the devastating impact of Covid, but
I think that I was able to know how incapable and inadequate I am as a person and CEO.

I still have a long way to go. I’m surprised that it has already been three years since I started my business, everything happened so fast…. I’ve learned so much every day, so running my own business was absolutely one of the best decisions I have ever made in my life!

In the fourth year, I will continue to do my best every day to make our vision and mission come true.
I am still inexperienced, but I would appreciate your support.

Founder & CEO

P.S. The picture is from my honeymoon, but I was also chased by waves like this last year.
