NTT DOCOMO Ventures acts as a bridge between NTT Group/ NTT DOCOMO and its strategic investment partners. We work with startups and our group companies from the twin vectors of “investment” and “business development”. We also work with other investors to raise funding and grow together.

We work in a wide range of telecommunications sectors like ICT technology, IoT, platforms, applications, services, and content.

ICT is gaining attention for its ability to provide added value to sectors as various as medicine, education, agriculture, and education, and we support borderless business synergy in these areas.

Since NTT Group's companies include various business entities not only telecommunication business, we partner with these groups with introducing promising startups to explore and create new possibilities.

Our goal is to pursue the business expansion by partnering startups everywhere and promoting the growth of businesses in Japan and around the world.
