General Information





Core Ventures Group

Core Ventures Group was started by Shinya Akamine who has spent his career in Silicon Valley working and personally investing in several startups. Our mission is to return the core and roots of high tech entrepreneurism and venture investing by working closely with founders to build valuable businesses that address real problems typically with advanced technology solutions.

We strive to find and support founders of the highest character and integrity. In our experience, that is the foundation upon which great companies are built. We primarily invest in seed stage B2B companies with advanced technological capabilities where Core Ventures Group is part of the first set of investors in the company.

We invest in relatively few companies and work as closely as possible with the founders to support the company in any area it needs. We are rigorous in creating actionable strategies, measuring and continual improvement. We try to have cast iron stomachs because even the best startups face serious challenges and surprises. We’ve found that when those things happen, freaking out usually doesn’t help.
