First Round, Lead Position, Build Industries

A venture capital firm that continues to be a "challenger"

Since its inception, Incubate Fund has managed a total of more than 620 billion yen and invested in more than 400 startups through its affiliated funds.00This makes Incubate Fund one of the largest venture capital firms in Japan specializing in pre- and post-launch seed stage companies. We believe that our ability to continue our investment activities in the early stages of startups for such a long period of time is a testament to the trust we have been able to build with entrepreneurs and the community.

One of the most important things we value is our motto, "We support the challenges of aspiring entrepreneurs."

This means that we think through management and business issues from the same perspective as the entrepreneur. At the same time, we are serious about being a good partner that allows the entrepreneur to focus on their business with peace of mind during the difficult times that come throughout the course of growing their business. As a lead investor, we provide thorough support in raising the funds necessary for business growth so that entrepreneurs can focus on their business. Entrepreneurs play a key role in startups. We, as a venture capital firm, are dedicated to at times being a behind-the-scenes player and at other times scrambling to create a business together. In addition to hands-on support, we believe this is the kind of entrepreneurial support that only Incubate Fund can provide.

Additionally, as a point of contact with entrepreneurs approaching the start-up stage, since 2010 we have run a seed acceleration program,"Incubate Camp".

Through this program, many of the participants have raised significant funds and achieved rapid growth. In addition to a place for startups to launch and take off, our accelerator also serves as a core community for venture capitalists. This program aims to provide a social infrastructure for all entrepreneurs who are thinking of starting a business and offer a gateway to a greater business launch.

Moving forward, we will continue to support the creation of new businesses and start-ups as a good partner for entrepreneurs and uphold our motto, "We support the challenges of aspiring entrepreneurs."
