ADARA with ANA & DAC

“WiL introduced and assisted in securing our largest APAC data partnership deal with All Nippon Airways. Through WiL’s introduction, we’ve also developed a close partnership with DAC, one of the largest digital ad agencies in Japan, for product and market development.”
– Layton Han, CEO of ADARA

Roqovan with Sony PlayStation

“Part of our decision to work with WiL as our investor is because of their close ties with multiple groups within Sony and their other corporate partners. This turns out to be an unfair advantage for us at Roqovan. We’re one of the select PlayStation VR launch partners, and are in a number of active partnership discussions via WiL’s introductions.”

– James Chung, CEO & Founder of Studio Roqovan

Mercari

“The WiL team’s deep understanding in company building in both US and Japan helped us greatly on our US go-to-market and team formation. Our current global expansion would not have happened without WiL’s tremendous support.“

 

-Shintaro Yamada, Co-founder CEO of Mercari

SORACOM

“WiL’s deep knowledge and connections in the global telecom industry helped us launch SORACOM worldwide from day one. With their strong support in recruiting management talent, we already have a strong team both in US and EU in addition to our HQ in Japan.“

-Ken Tamagawa, Co-founder CEO of SORACOM

ClearMotion

“WiL has materially enhanced our chances of success. Their access within Japan and parts of Asia is incredible; they’ve opened doors to key people, key companies, and key markets that would not be part of our story were it not for their involvement.”
-Shakeel Avadhany, Co-founder CEO of ClearMotion
