Our mission is to help the world’s entrepreneurs rapidly deliver high-quality products to the market, regardless of production volume. As a global ecosystem contributor, we provide founders with essential resources such as investment, mentorship, prototyping know-how, manufacturing expertise and community support.
We aim to build a global ecosystem that puts the growth of startups first.
By leveraging this community, startups can benefit from support for prototyping and mass production, selection of factories and suppliers, funding, and matching with large corporations.In turn, we believe the growth of startups will also benefit all partners in industry, government and academia.
Monozukuri Ventures was established through the merger of Kyoto-based Darma Tech Labs and New York-based FabFoundry.
The synergy of our respective knowledge and networks will allow us to grow together with startups.
