iSigma Capital (ISC) marked its 15th anniversary since establishment in September 2015.
Initially, at the time of establishment, ISC carried out its activities mainly focusing on venture capital investments. In 2008, ISC layed the groundwork to further expand its Private Equity business by establishing a buyout practice, launching iSigma Business Advancement Fund I, followed by the successive launch of iSigma Business Advancement Fund II in July 2013, All executives and employees are equally filled with gratitude, being aware that these achievements are entirely made possible by the support of shareholders, investors, management and employees of investees, and all of our business partners.
Among the small-and-medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) -which supports the Japanese economy and numbers up to a little less than 3.3 million companies- we believe there are many companies faced with various problems, such as companies that are struggling to find successors, are experiencing growing pain and are seeking a breakthrough for new growth, and are considering to expand overseas. Also, there are many companies facing corporate reorganization evaluation to concentrate on core business.
ISC’s business model is to become a strategic shareholder of such companies, involving itself deeply in their management with a genuine spirit of unity, while optimally utilizing the vast resources of Marubeni Group, such as behind the scenes business insight of various industries, global business networks, and the ability to initiate global business development projects. In addition, by utilizing our management support intelligence such as business management system development, strategic human resource planning, overseas expansion and top-line sales growth strategy implementation, which we have accumulated since establishment, ISC will strive to solve the problems of its investees and increase their enterprise value, creating a basis for sustainable development.
In an aim to become your best partner, ISC will continuously pursue self-improvement, while also doing our best to persistently and wholeheartedly serve companies with enthusiasm. We sincerely ask for your continued support in the future.
