What We Do


Fundraising and M&A Support for Startups

We support startups in the United States and Japan in their pre and post seed to early stage fundraising.

We utilize our networks with VCs, angel investors, strategic corporates, debt providers and more! Based on your startup needs, our professionals who are familiar with financing and the startup ecosystem, provide tailor-made fundraising strategies and build pitch decks for you. We support an entire fundraising process for your startup.

You can think of us as “CFO as a service.”

Open Innovation Program

You may have heard of this term for the first time. Basically “Open Innovation” is a process of connecting startup companies and enterprises to fill needs from both sides. Many leading companies, which already have vast customer bases and other assets, seek collaboration opportunities with startups as yours. You can share your  products to boost your business if you think it’s the right fit.

Scout Program

We introduce you to the most promising startups in the United States and Japan. These startups include ones selected by premium accelerators such as Y combinator and 500 Startups. We can also reach out to untapped startups based on your target criteria.
