Before we started up M0mentum, I, Ryo Okubo, have spent lots of time and built my career in the financial industry, where there is no limit for the amount of information and fast speed. Day after day after day, drowning in the bottomless borderless information pool, digging, sorting, differentiating, identifying, pin-point-ing, I realized that 70% of that time was actually wasted, because, what we needed could only be found in the 30%.
Today, there are numerous new services, products that are created, provided and introduced to us almost every day. On one hand it means you have options – LOTS of them, but on the other hand, you can get stressed out from all of the info shower and sometimes you find yourself drowning or even buried in it.
That is why we started M0mentum – to balance this unbalanced supply and choices demand of information, and provide the space that you may have not realized, but need it.
M0mentum will wipe out all the unnecessary “stuff” in our info-oriented society to none, nada, ZERO. Which is why we placed ZERO into our logo. Our goal is to free you from the stress you may unconsciously feel being in the info society, by the unnecessary “stuff” that’s just out there, and the time you are “wasting” on them. We think we are capable to give you more space for something more important. We value and so want to provide service that is based on “simplifying” and “too much info-free”.
We don’t just limit the info to simplify it since we want to avoid overlooking and missing out on “what is really necessary” “what you really need”. So, we measure our issue depth by our service development. The development that is capable to identify what users find that is only “just stuff” or “stressful”.
To free your too-much-info and service world, our service is simple and our motto is “no extra routine for the users”. It’s very common with product development, you end up adding something extra when what you really want is to downsize. ”M0mentum” wants to be your service that is just a simple replacement or doesn’t get in the way of your routine. Like the word means, “M0mentum”, we need to keep it and want to be a company that has the speed and strength to sort out other services and other information that comes out even as we speak or think or breathe. M0mentum will be your service that will always have enough speed to create the ZERO that you need.
