CASES 02Toyo Kanetsu Corporate
Venture Capital Fund II (TKCV II)

CVC JAPAN has commissioned CVC funds from 2017 since Toyo Kanetsu Corporation (a large-sized crude oil, etc. tank and logistics maker) listed on the First Section of the TSE, and since investment management is operating smoothly, in 2018 we established our second fund. We will consider CVC investment for actively launching new businesses more actively in view of the evaluation of activities so far.

Second Fund (500 million yen) October 2018
Period: 7 years (maximum 2 years extension)


The Chairman of the Fund's Investment Committee and the principal investment officer (Key-man) are in charge of Dr. Satoshi Tomita, president of CVC JAPAN.

The CVC Fund is a promising startup in Japan and overseas with attractive business ideas as an innovative advanced technology and profit model to set up a new business to be the third business of TOYO Kanetsu Corporation listed on TSE 1st Section Etc., and collaborate with investment startups, etc. to realize business construction, and is a corporate venture capital fund. It is founded by two companies, Toyo Kanetsu and CVC JAPAN.
