We would like to thank everyone for their efforts in accepting this capital. It all started when Mr. Kaneko, who is active in Silicon Valley, introduced us to a professional sports team in Shizuoka Prefecture, and we decided to collaborate with Nandora. Since then, with the passion and drive of everyone on the Japanese side, including Mr. Kanazawa, multiple projects have been put into motion, leading to this capital alliance.
I heard that Yaramaika Fund’s “Yaramaika” is a Hamamatsu dialect word that means “Let’s just try!” In the future, we will continue to work on revitalizing Shizuoka’s sports and local community with the spirit of “Yara Maika” while leveraging each other’s strengths! * Alliance & Sales Manager Kenta Osuga*
