A fund of payment companies, by a payment company, for payment companies
Our limited partners are major financial institutions like credit card issuers and acquiring banks. GMO Payment Gateway is the strategic management company; GMOVenturePartners is the fund manager. The fund was established with 15 million USD. The investment target is payments companies throughout Asia, especially in Southeast Asia.
It is not a large fund, but we are focused.
We have passion, hope, and faith in our industry.
We know there are innovative, disruptive, high-potential entrepreneurs and teams in payments.
Unlike traditional VCs, we don’t just make financial investments.
We export successful ideas and use cases from Japan and provide the support needed by startups as they accelerate. We also identify synergies between our LPs and portfolio companies and among our portfolio companies across Asia. We are helping to build a full-scale payment industry, aiming for an open ecosystem, that spans the region, drawing on our experience in Japan. Not only first in Japan but first in the world.
Payments are the platform on which economic activity can be built. The payments system is infrastructure essential to growth in Asia. We contribute to the payments industry, we are helping to build the Asian e-commerce industry, too.
If you have the same hopes that we do, join this fund. If you feel the same passion that we do, join this industry. If you have the same faith that we do, join this platform.
