No – InterValley is a Australian ESVCLP fund – however some its fund has been raised in Japan and it has an office in Tokyo for its Japan based partners. As a result of its strong ties to Japan it leverages its networks in both Japan and Australia to offer its portfolio companies unique support in both countries and indeed globally given the very strong international experience of its partners.
The majority of our partnerships are with Australian entrepreneurs as that’s where we can add the most value – helping build your team, connecting you with other founders, and providing access to expertise.
However, we are actively looking for companies that are market leaders globally and they’re looking for our help to expand into the Australian or Japanese markets.
When those companies are also in a space that’s particularly relevant to Australia or Japan - then it’s a no-brainer for us to get involved.
