This Fund will make investments in Nikon's current business areas, and in the latest technologies and new service areas (e.g., IT, AI and robots). To expand new business operations, Nikon has implemented a medium-term management plan including a policy to invest approximately JPY 30 billion in the CVC (Corporate Venture Capital) Program, and has already started to invest globally in venture companies through multiple VC (Venture Capital) firms including SBI Investment. The Nikon-SBI Innovation Fund is a part of the CVC Program. Nikon's CVC Program aims to actively acquire the latest technologies and business models that venture companies have developed, while Nikon-SBI Innovation Fund's objective is to increase investments in new business areas, as well as Nikon's current business areas.
