ABOUT

Bridging Smart Capital to Japan’s Innovations

“Made in Japan” was once so closely associated with innovation. Many will remember Walkman, play Nintendo or drive an electric vehicle used lithium-ion batteries. Japan has made a huge impact on the development of many technologies that we use in our daily life.

 

However, innovations from Japan began to dwindle since the new millennium. Has Japan lost its “Mojo”?

 

Things are looking up and the future of Japanese technologies seems brighter than ever, especially in areas such as Deep Tech, Advanced Manufacturing, SaaS and Healthcare.

 

Yitu Capital was founded in 2020, focusing on private investments in Japan. We invest in innovative Japanese companies which converge technology, entertainment and creativity and have potential to become next “Sony” or “Nintendo”.

VALUE PROPOSITION

The Curve

We target outsized returns by investing in fast-growing privately-held companies in Japan across sectors and stages.

 

We support ambitious entrepreneurs by providing value-adding capital and access to markets.

 

We help our investors to diversify investment risks into Japan’s alternative asset class, which is hard-to-access, hard-to-diligence and hard-to-monitor.
