Frenchweb interviewed Hiroshi Mikitani, the co-founder and current president of Rakuten. He tells us about the café he opened in Shibuya, Tokyo, designed for customers to use the different services of his group. It also plans to open in other countries. He also returns to acquisition of the Viber application – which occurred last February for 900 million dollars – and why he considers that it represents an asset for its e-commerce activities.
