Entrepreneurs often need strong partners in order to scale their businesses. This is particularly true for those developing novel hardware systems, exploring new business models, or growing international ventures.
Yamaha Motor Ventures & Laboratory Silicon Valley (YMVSV) exists to accelerate the efforts of teams driving disruptive change. We are a Yamaha Motor Group company and a wholly owned subsidiary of Yamaha Motor Company (Japan).
Promising efforts sometimes raise venture capital. Financing these companies through strategic investment is a portion of our activity. For other ventures, strategic corporate partnerships might mean access to vehicles, technology, teams, hardware, infrastructure, or something else entirely. Whether investment, partnership, or both, we work collaboratively to create the future of industries ranging from personal transportation to industrial automation.
