Overseas expansion is not only important for startups, but also for VCs. CyberAgent Ventures is a venture capital firm that does early-stage investments focusing on consumer internet startups in China, South Korea, and Southeast Asia, among which six companies successfully completed IPO.

Japan-based CyberAgent Ventures had zero investment outside Japan when Nobuaki Kitagawa joined in 2006, and now with Nobuaki in charge of China, South East Asia, and South Korea markets, CyberAgent has made 150 investments with setting up 8 offices throughout Asia, including Jakarta Indonesia, Ho Chi Minh Vietnam and Bangkok Thailand run by head of each country operation.

CyberAgent Ventures was founded in 2006 and is run by two managing partners Nobuaki Kitagawa and Hirofumi Kondo in Tokyo. All of their funds are in USD with separate funds for China, South East Asia, and South Korea. With about 150 million USD assets under management, 50% of the fund is invested in Japan and about 30% is invested in China, and less than 20% is invested in South East Asia and South Korea.
