Global Brain (GB) has invested in Crowdport, Inc., a Japanese startup offering a social lending platform, “Funds”, through its GB-VII Growth Fund Investment Limited Partnership (GB- VII).
Crowdport provides a B-to-C social lending platform, which connects various individual investors and listed companies or promising startups. Since its service launch in January 2019, Crowdport has been providing new opportunities to companies and investors in Japan, where the credit market is comparatively immature to the US market.
GB has decided to invest in Crowdport because we evaluated its stable origination capability, the growth potential of the market, and Crowdport management. GB will leverage its resources to support Crowdport by supporting the company in strategy development and building partnerships to expand its business.
