Since 2011, Cross Fields has been reported in nearly 300 media publications both domestically and internationally, including "Nikkei Weekly” (Newspaper), “NHK World” (TV), and "Harvard Business Review." Our activity also received many prestigious awards and recognitions, such as “Japan HR Award 2014” and “Nikkei Social Initiative Award 2015.” In 2012, we were selected as one of the investees of Social Venture Partners Tokyo.

Our co-founders have also been widely recognized. They were both nominated as Global Shaper by the World Economic Forum (WEF). As a Global Shaper, Konuma joined the WEF on East Asia in Myanmar in 2013, while Matsushima joined the WEF in Davos in 2016. In addition, Matsushima gave a speech titled, “Continue to challenge without fear” at TEDxUTokyo in 2012. Konuma was elected as one of ”Japan’s 20 best U-40 Leaders to create the future” by Harvard Business Review in 2016.
