OUR MISSION

Mission

Connection people with their intellectual property

Our mission is to create a world where everybody can have an equal opportunity to protect their intellectual property. As a first step, we have created a platform where anybody could easily register a trademark.
The "Coto" in Cotobox represents the "Coto" in "Atarashii Koto", which translates into the "thing" in the phrase "a new thing". As the value of intellectual property rises, modern society finds more and more pleasure in having great experiences as a direct result of people creating better "things".
We strongly believe we could to become and continue being the people who produce newer and greater value from the products and services we create.

Value

BEYOND

Thinking outside the box and creating things that haven't existed before, challenging ourselves to greater and bigger obstacles.

FOR

To know who you are making the product for, and always remember to think about it.

WITH

To be considerate to those who you are creating things with, and to always aim to produce new value out of the product of the collaboration.
