It would be no exaggeration to say that human ingenuity, determination, and action are more in need now than in any prior era in history.

However, there are limits to what just one person can do. Exceptional talent and constant effort are indispensable, but they alone will not allow you to take advantage of business opportunities. For good ideas and an excellent business to provide a service to society, it is vital and essential that the excellence of that business and its ideas are more widely known. Building a good business is building a good network.

Venture Labo starts with a trusted relationship with each enterprise and works as a third party objectively evaluating the strengths and positives of the enterprise. Venture Labo then uses those evaluations to support business expansions. In addition, affiliated company Venture Labo Investment works to get the growth funds necessary to stimulate the development of early startups. In this way, Venture Labo aims to provide businesses with a unique contribution.

An entrepreneur needs to have the kind of tough mindset that can dream of success while at the same time repeatedly overcoming real-life problems. Some people say that the path to success is impossible, but if you focus on difficult work, and if it is work that can change the world, then the only road to success is to utilize all your strength to utilize a business model built by carefully finding a path through all the difficulties. One success will be linked with the next. This becomes a cycle and a framework for numerous future successes.

Up to this point, it has been mainly large companies that have changed the norms of society. However, I believe that these days, various innovative technologies and the spread of the internet are opening the door to the potential for venture companies to do so as well.
In fact, highly problem-aware and motivated entrepreneurs, who feverishly strive to enhance people’s lives with polished technologies/business models, may be taking a faster route. Venture companies have the hidden potential to make an impact that will change the norms of society for the better, and we wish to fully support them and move forward together.
