GREE, founded by Yoshikazu Tanaka in Feb, 2004, is now the largest SNS platform in Japan. The company is listed on the first section of Tokyo Stock Exchange in June, 2010 when it has >20 millions users. By end of 2010, GREE’s registered users have reached 23.83 millions and it has around 282 employees worldwide.

Unlike many Japanese local web companies which focus on Japan only, International market, is one of most important business strategy for GREE in 2011. In January 2011, GREE established its subsidiary, GREE International Inc. in the US, and also acquired Atlantis Co. Ltd. More recently, GREE also announced the business collaboration with Tencent, the super Internet giant.

It’s a great honor for TechNode to have the chance of talking to GREE Pr. in Japan which gave us a comprehensive exploration of GREE’s achievement, vision and strategy in 2011.
