Steven Munatones

Speaker

Steven Munatones was born and raised in California, and worked as an entrepreneur after an initial 8-year career as an engineer in Japan. Fluent in Japanese, he received an award upon graduation from Harvard University for being “an individual whose interests are not bounded by academic or institutional structures. A joyous, deeply-rooted affirmation of life, disdain for the purely conventional; a love of adventure and desire to learn by experiencing, the ability to respond creatively to difficult situations”.  Over the last 23 years, he served as CEO of TOTO Frontier USA, ibidlive, RealLiveSports, Aruze Gaming, World Open Water Swimming Association, and currently KAATSU Global.  In 2001, he met Dr. Yoshiaki Sato, the inventor of KAATSU, and studied under him for 13 years before they co-founded KAATSU Global.
