Waporta (owned and operated by Astris Advisory) is a web-based technology platform designed to create an ecosystem which connects Japanese investors with innovative companies globally. Through this network, Waporta’s vision is to enable investors to more readily access promising start-ups and likewise, enable start-ups (early stage companies) to more easily raise capital in Japan.
The Waporta personnel are a diverse team of individuals uniquely positioned in the Japanese investor market due to their pre-existing relationship with Japan Inc. spanning decades. The team holds the skill-set to navigate the market with Japanese staff being well equipped to understand the demanding requirements from the investors on the ground and non-Japanese staff able to steer overseas start-ups through language and cultural barriers.
The Waporta name itself is comprised of the Kanji character 和 (A deeply significant meaning for all things traditionally Japanese) pronounced “Wa” and “Porta” (Latin for gateway or portal). Through collaboration, local market expertise, global expertise, long standing relationships with investors and start-ups, in addition to a technology platform to connect the dots, Waporta is “Your Gateway to Japan”.
