Venture capital: The next level

Japan’s VC managers are being asked the same questions as their global peers on valuation policies, portfolio exposure, and exit timelines. Beneath the surface, however, there remains a sense that the country’s start-up ecosystem is at an inflection point; that the investment opportunity, especially in areas like deep technology, has barely been tapped. Our panellists consider the characteristics that will define the next generation of local start-ups and how quickly they can achieve global scale.

  • What makes Japan an attractive market for venture capital?
  • Which will deliver the most alpha: deep tech, climate tech, or biotech?
  • What has happened to growth-stage funding?
  • How are investing thinking through their exit options?
