Sakuta-san is leading venture finance advisory business in Japan at Deloitte Tohmatasu, supporting startup fund raising and M&A as well as the corporate venturing journey of large global corporates.
In this conversation, we are taking a health check on the Japanese venture capital and corporate venture capital ecosystem, and Sakuta-san explains how he sees VCs and CVCs responding differently to the pandemic. We dive deeper into the differences between Japanese VCs/CVCs and their Western counterparts, what technology areas and geographical regions Japanese investors are currently focused on, and why it does not hurt to be a unicorn.
We invite you to join the Tokyo FinTech community on Meetup…
