A Bridge Between Japanese Innovation and Asian Startups

Yuji Horiguchi

IMJ Investment Partners was founded in January 2012 in Tokyo, originally with a focus on investing in startups in Japan and Silicon Valley. Sensing the region’s great potential for growth, in mid-2012 we began operations in Southeast Asia and established a new head office in Singapore in February 2013. Our current activities mainly consist of venture investment and support in Southeast Asia and Japan.

Taking a bottom-up approach to management and emphasizing integrity and openmindedness, we aspire to utilize the rich information we’ve acquired from our experience in the field to contribute to the growth of some of the many excellent start-ups in Asia. In addition, we aim to use our expertise to spur innovation in Japan.
