Zenshin: Hard Working , High Integrity Firm

Fund: ZenShin Capital

Posted by Anonymous on 2008-09-04

PUBLIC:

I work in a Zenshin portfolio company. Zenshin is an emerging fund with strong contacts and expertise in wireless, internet technology, consumer internet and Asian markets.

What I have observed is that both TK Mori and Yoji kawaguchi are very hard working and trustworthy investors. They are not embarrassed to raise tough questions that the company needs to face but they are not overbearing or narrow minded. They listen far more than they talk. They take action items and actually follow up on them.

They have operating experience so they understand that running a business requires lots of decisions and course corrections. They are also long term and patient thinkers. They never fire off a random idea out of nowhere and ask the management team to jump.

they are very supportive during financing, they will open their contact list fully to help the company.

I have also been impressed at the contacts they have in asia. Want a meeting with a carrier in Japan" Done. Want to talk to a disk drive maker" Done.

I would recommend Zenshin very highly. I hope they have a lot of success because their style of venture investing is good for entrepreneurs.
