Hideyuki Ebihara Head of Seoul Office
Japan is ahead of the curve in the mobile business. Moreover, with one of the highest smartphone penetration rates in the world and a track record of creating cutting-edge Internet services, South Korea is a market with the potential to bring the most cutting-edge business in the world in the era of smart devices. As the time has come, we are just a step away from the birth of mega-ventures in these two countries, which then soon reach global market. Leveraging my past experience in investment in Japan, CAV’s Asia-focused global network, and our expertise in Internet sector, I am fully committed to provide support for the creation of leading mega-ventures in the smart device era and assisting ambitious entrepreneurs. I'm looking forward to seeing entreprenurs who have strong passion to expand their bussiness into Japan and Asean.
