Yitu Capital was founded based on the idea of bridging innovations between Japan and China, the world’s no.3 and no.2 economies. We invest in fast-growing high-tech companies in Japan. We support ambitious Japanese companies to enter the Chinese market.
Japan is known for technology and innovation, with the world’s highest R&D expenditure to GDP ratio. 20 Japanese have won Nobel Prize in the field of natural science since 2000.
Japan’s venture capital is growing rapidly, but still less known to and hard-to-access for many investors outside of the country.
We have extensive experience in VC/PE investments and built a broad network in Japan and China, with business owners, family offices and venture capital firms over the past 20+ years.
