William Sato is a businessman who works in the technology industry. He has been the chief executive officer of Intecur since July 2007. This is a business which is based in Tokyo, Japan and it helps entities in both the private and public sectors who need help developing an IT strategy. The type of IT his company offers consulting on includes both computer and information security, project management, cybersecurity, and corporate strategy among others.
After graduating from high school in 1988 William Sato became at a student at the University of California, Riverside. He graduated in 1992 with a bachelor’s degree in biochemistry. After this he attended this university’s A. Gary Anderson Graduate School of Management where he completed their advanced management program in 1993 and then their executive management program in 1994.
In 2012 William Saito attended Yale University. He took part in their Young Global Leaders Master Class according to Bloomberg. This brought together professionals from many areas such as government, academics, media, business, and nonprofits. In 2013 he took part in the Global Leadership and Public Policy for the 21st Century program at the Harvard Kennedy School of Government. This was advanced training based on what he learned at Yale University and better prepared him to handle pressing global issues.
While William Saito was attended the University of California he started his first company. This was called I/O Software, Inc. This was a technology company that started out providing software for such things as video compression and encryption. It evolved into an IT security platform which provided services to many multinational corporations. One of these companies was Microsoft and they licensed his software to be used in the Windows OS.
As an entrepreneur, William Sato has written and talked about the issues that affect startups. One of the big issues is how financial turmoil can upend a new business before it can become successful. It has been said that financial crisis and recessions winnow out weaker startups and thus only the strongest of them survive. This is because lending standards are tightened up during periods like this and so access to credit is limited.
He has written about entrepreneurship in Japan and how it has been limited since that nation’s economy crashed in 1991. There have been some recent positive signs in Japan, such as more female entrepreneurs, but by and large the level of entrepreneurship is nowhere near where it was before 1991. William Sato says that in order to encourage entrepreneurship the Japanese government has to create incentives to start new companies. The government also needs to commercialize the latest technologies as well so that new companies can thrive and compete against other companies around the world.

Waiakea is becoming the world’s best-bottled water. This company is based out of Hawaii and the water itself is filtered through 14,000 feet of volcano rock. Hawaii’s volcanic water has proven to be filled with more vitamins and nutrients. 8 million tons of plastic is thrown into our oceans, and 38 billion plastic bottles a year are in our landfills. It takes 1,000 years you degrade into the earth. But thankfully, in 2018, Waiakea will begin to use the first degradable plastic bottles. These new bottles can change the environment. The bottle uses 100% recyclable plastics and can degrade into the earth within 15 years.
Waiakea was founded by Ryan Emmons in 2012. He remembered how pure the Hawaiian water was while on vacations with his family. The name Waiakea comes from ‘Wai Akea’ which means broad waters. They also have a partnership with PumpAid, a charity who brings clean water to needy countries. Waiakea donates 650 liters, for every 1 liter you buy, to communities in Africa. Over 500 million liters have been donated.
The volcanic water benefits include, but not limited to a magnesium, calcium, and the perfect amount of silica. Drinking 10mg of silica can reduce the chances of Alzheimer’s by 11%. It can also help with other health issues. The company would like to do more research and give more feedback on all the health benefits the water can provide. Waiakea water is proving to be amazing.
Waiakea water has 8.8 Ph levels and BPA free and rich in minerals and electrolytes. The packaging is made of high grade, 100 percent plastic. The process of the packing being made also reduces carbon emissions by more than 90%. The company has many awards, such as Food and Beverages Innovation Award from the National Restaurant Association. They have been featured in magazines like Forbes, People, and Good Morning America. Waiakea can be found at Whole Foods, Central Markets, and Albertson.
