In April 2022, SV announced a new fund to set Web3 as a central investment theme.
The potential of the blockchain field, which supports Web3 and its technology, is a theme that both Japanese startups and large companies should work on for the next 20-30 years, just as various companies were born and grew rapidly after the advent of the Internet. am thinking. In that respect, we believe that the opportunity for negotiations with large companies like this was a very valuable opportunity for discussion, and we have reached this alliance.
