In 2017: SoftBank Group Corp created the SoftBank Vision Fund

SoftBank Vision Fund

SoftBank Group Corp created the SoftBank Vision Fund as a result of its strongly held belief that the next stage of the Information Revolution is underway, and building the businesses that will make this possible will require unprecedented large scale long-term investment. Additionally, the Fund’s portfolio companies are expected to significantly benefit from SBG’s global scale and operational expertise, as well as its ecosystem of group portfolio companies (including Sprint and Yahoo Japan); this will thereby help them to accelerate their own growth profile.  The Fund will be SoftBank Group Corp primary vehicle to realise its SoftBank 2.0 vision, with preferred access to investments of $100 million or more that meet the Fund’s investment strategy.   SoftBank Vision Fund 2 was created in 2019.  

SoftBank Vision Fund (SVF) 1 and 2 seek to accelerate the AI revolution through investments in market-leading, tech-enabled growth companies, particularly in private companies valued at over $1 billion at the time of investment, colloquially known as “unicorns.” Their global reach, unparalleled ecosystem and patient capital help founders build transformative businesses.

Masayoshi Son, Chairman & CEO of SoftBank Group Corp

“Technology has the potential to address the biggest challenges and risks facing humanity today. The businesses working to solve these problems will require patient long-term capital and visionary strategic investment partners with the resources to nurture their success. SoftBank has long made bold investments in transformative technologies and supported disruptive entrepreneurs. The SoftBank Vision Fund is consistent with this strategy and will help build and grow businesses creating the foundational platforms of the next stage of the Information Revolution.”
