Nippon Venture Capital Co., Ltd.
This year marks the 25th anniversary of our founding, and as a venture capital firm, we have been proud to have indirectly contributed to technological innovation and social change by supporting the success of many of our portfolio companies. However, with the acceleration of environmental and social problems such as climate change, environmental destruction, declining birthrate, aging population, and the depopulation of rural areas in Japan, we believe that a different approach will be required. This is why we decided to join the Japan Impact-driven Financing Initiative. Our efforts have just begun, but we are delighted to work with the Initiative’s signatories to promote impact-driven finance for the next 30, 50, and 100 years.
