Crossover Impact Fund

Late-stage startups often face several challenges before and after IPO, such as insufficient supply of growth capital, small IPOs, weak governance, and inadequate adaptation to the rapidly changing environment post-listing. To address these issues, crossover investments that can consistently support growth from the late stage to post-IPO are necessary. Moreover, the Japanese government’s vision of a “New Capitalism” sets specific goals of generating 10 trillion yen in growth capital for startups and creating 100 unicorn companies by 2027, with crossover investments considered to be key to achieving these targets.
Our Crossover Impact Fund combines our experience and knowledge in supporting deep tech startups with Nomura Asset Management Co., Ltd.’s long-established effective dialogue methods with listed companies. This fund aims to provide long-term capital to promising late-stage startups that target impact-oriented IPOs tied to solving social issues and to support the enhancement of corporate value with an emphasis on sustainable growth after listing.
