Do you need to raise money for your startup? The total investment volume is increasing, but large-scale finance is focusing on middle/later stages, and early-stage startups still have challenges to access fundraising opportunities. Equity based crowdfunding is becoming the third wave of investment methods after Angel Investors and VCs especially when startups are looking for supporters and striving for social good.
For this hands-on event, Akihiro Ota, working at Corporate Planning Office of Japan Crowd Capital Inc. with a professional experience in ESG/Impact investment will share his insights about equity crowdfunding in Japan. His strong focus on making a significant social impact with international teams is the driving force to support startups through fundraising.
This event is organized by Japan Crowd Capital Inc. and Startup Welcome Service, a government-run project for foreign founders who are interested in applying for a Startup visa and launching their startup in Japan.
