How We Operate

We firmly believe the best way to engage entrepreneurs is to partner with them. Not by sending a check and showing up once a quarter. Not by micromanaging them. Not by parachuting in our favorite CEO to take over. Not by pairing them with a Partner managing 10 other Board seats.

Partnering means developing a shared view of the opportunity, rolling up sleeves, and building something big together. No one works harder than startup founders, but investors ought to try, and we do. Opening doors to customers and partners; providing a sounding board; acting as mentors; debating strategy; developing consensus; the best VCs do all of these well, but they do them even better when they built their own business from the ground up, and have successfully helped other entrepreneurs realize their dream – we have.

Some of the other things that make SunBridge different –

Global Perspective –¬†Operations in the United States and Japan, decades of experience and industry networks in North America, Japan and Europe.

SaaS Thought Leaders – From the founding of Oracle Japan to the creation of Salesforce Japan, direct participation in the transformation of the software industry.

Research Drives Everything We Do – Rather than sifting through incoming opportunities, we find the problem first, develop hypotheses, and hunt down the companies solving it.
