Challenges in the unknown are filled with excitement. Just the thought that "this idea might change the world," "it might enrich people's lives," or "it might bring significant impact to society" is incredibly thrilling.

However, at the same time, building and nurturing a business from scratch is extremely difficult. Unexpected difficulties keep popping up, one after another, from funding to hiring, product development, and organizational structure. Even with a meticulous business plan crafted over time, things rarely go as planned.

Money Forward continues to experience high growth, having gone through an IPO in 2017 and multiple M&A involving other startups. The support and lessons received from many entrepreneurs and investors we met along the way serve as a driving force to keep advancing our business. We have also engaged in various initiatives as partners to promote regional economic revitalization, in addition to service collaboration with financial institutions nationwide through open APIs.

In Japan, it's not common for entrepreneurs to also act as investors. However, by sharing the numerous failures, knowledge, and networks they have accumulated, entrepreneurs can make the startup journey even more fruitful. Entrepreneurs and investors are partners in shaping the future. HIRAC FUND aims to share struggles, sweat, and carve out the future together with entrepreneurs.
