  1. I had the pleasure of meeting Mr Fasulo on the Sony booth at CES 2020 BL*. He was very helpful and I wish him well. My startup here in England want to work with Sony on some innovative consumer electronics ventures and he pointed me in the right direction: Minato! So once lockdown is over, we’ll be off to Japan to make our pitch.
