Business of VEC

About three business

In order to support the development of startup companies in Japan, Venture Enterprise Center (abbreviated as VEC) was established as an organization approved by Minister of Economy, Trade and Industry (former Minister of International Trade and Industry) in 1975.


Since establishment, VEC had been engaged in debt guarantee operation as its core business to raise fund for startup companies (this service ended in 2001). The company switched to general incorporated foundation on April 1, 2012. Currently, instead of this, we are conducting various startup business supporting activities such as “Provision of Research Information” in which we investigate the investment trends of venture capital, “Policy Proposal” through research and study on specific issues, and “Development of Entrepreneurial Environment” to promote the communication between the new entrepreneurs and supporters.
