Blockchain-centric VC fund backing bold entrepreneurs with Japan’s most prolific investors

Inazuma Capital is Japan’s first multi-dimensional blockchain VC fund investing in disruptive and transformative companies in early, mid, and growth-stage across multiple sectors.

Our Mission

At Inazuma Capital, our mission is to help usher in an era of decentralization that will transform our world. We aim to do this by investing in projects that push the limits of blockchain technology, bringing it closer to its full potential as a positive catalyst for all of humanity.

Since we chiefly operate in Japan and neighboring Asian countries, we focus on bringing global projects to Japanese investors, putting a spotlight on opportunities that might otherwise not make waves in this tight knit community.

What Sets Us Apart?

Inazuma is not only about capital. We provide a multidimensional boost to our investments through our extensive and loyal investor community, brand localization services, market entry consultation, and our ability to broker strategic partnerships.

Inazuma brings a comprehensive support package—capital investment, marketing message development, community access, and industry connections—to make sure the projects we believe in succeed on the global stage and change the world.
