* ■Comment from Kengo Asakura, Representative Director and CEO of Naley Co., Ltd. *
We have recently raised 820 million yen as a Series B round. Based on our mission of “beautifying the world with individuality,” we aim to create a world where people can attract customers through their individuality, rather than through coupons and bargain prices, and improve the status of everyone involved in the beauty industry. I would like to continue doing so.
Also, since I myself come from the beauty industry, I would like to use the power of technology to update the old structures that I have experienced over the past 15 years, which are harmful to the industry. With this funding, we will strengthen our marketing, strengthen our products, strengthen our internal structure to accelerate the speed of business growth, and recruit human resources.We will work even harder to achieve our goals. I am.
To all the investors who sympathized with our business and became new shareholders, to all the investors and business partners who have been involved in the past, to our members who work with us every day, We would like to express our sincere gratitude to the users of Naley, and we will continue to work hard to achieve our goals.

*●Nissei Capital Akimasa Okubo*
I am very pleased to have the opportunity to invest in Naley. The Nail app is an innovative reservation platform that promotes appropriate matching between nail technicians and users while focusing on solving problems for nail technicians.
I feel that Nailey has great potential as it is steadily growing its products, led by President Asakura, who has a wealth of experience and connections in the nail industry.
We look forward to seeing Naley achieve further growth and
establishing new standards in the nail industry.
As Nissay Capital, we will do our best to support Neily in realizing its equity story.
* ●SMBC Venture Capital Mr. Junya Yasuda*
When considering investment, we interviewed various nail artists, and we realized that nail care is already becoming an indispensable infrastructure for nail artists. I also deeply sympathize with the attitude of President Asakura and the rest of the Nail Team, who run the company through trial and error every day, thinking that they want nail technicians to be more active.
We hope that with this funding, Nailly will further expand into a service that is loved by nail artists and users alike. The SMBC Group will continue to provide full support.
* ●POLA ORBIS Holdings Co., Ltd.*
*General Planning Office, Corporate Venture Capital, Mr. Yuichiro Kishi / Mr. Saki Maezawa*
We are very honored to have invested in Naley Co., Ltd.
As a CtoC platform that addresses the needs of fashion-conscious users while solving the challenges faced by sole proprietors in the nail industry,
I feel that our position in the industry is becoming more and more established these days.
I was impressed by the management team’s focus on the potential of the beauty market as a whole and always aiming to maximize customer satisfaction.
We will do our best to support you in your future growth.
*●THE SEED Taki Hirosawa*
This time, we have invested in Mr. Neily from THE SEED 3rd issue. I happened to speak with Mr. Asakura at a social gathering at an event, and I was strongly attracted to his deep knowledge of management and keen insight into business, so I decided to schedule an interview with him later.
This fund usually focuses on seed investments, but we are very happy to be able to work with them this time.
I hope to be able to be of some help to Mr. Neily’s further growth. * ●Vector Co., Ltd. Representative Director Hajime Nishie*
We are confident that Nail’s services, which are suited to the diversifying era in which individuals and freelancers are active, will bring new value to the existing nail industry and expand the possibilities of the nail artist profession.
This is our company’s vision, and we would like to continue to help people like Neiley by “spreading good things to the world and making people happy.”
