I went home and googled SoftBank and Masa. I have been watching this company for 30 years. By there will be a trillion connected devices, he said — a vast Internet of Things of autonomous vehicles, smart robots and artificially intelligent sensors, and Arm would be the company behind all these devices.
Jean Liu, president of DiDi. SoftBank and DiDi have partnered to launch a taxi-hailing service in Japan. It also marked the moment that many people in Britain, including business and technology insiders, had first heard of SoftBank. That this relatively unknown Japanese telco was in fact a heavyweight global investor came as a revelation to most, despite its run of big-ticket purchases. Are you a mobile operator? And once SoftBank was finally a recognisable name there was a new complication: it needed more money to keep investing.
Finding a solution for that problem was the remit of a former Deutsche Bank debt trader by the name of Rajeev Misra. Misra grew up in New Delhi.
In , he enrolled at the University of Pennsylvania to study mechanical engineering and computer science. He then worked at Los Alamos designing satellites, and on software simulations at a Philadelphia-based startup called Reality Technologies, before returning to business school.
Misra met Son in , when he was global head of credit, emerging markets at Deutsche Bank. He lent money to SoftBank and then helped it to structure the complex takeover of Vodafone Japan. They re-connected eight years later at a wedding in the summer of The windfall allowed SoftBank to expand globally, and Son wanted Misra to work for him again.
We felt we were restricted because we spend a lot of money.
Edwardian London Through Japanese Eyes considers the career of the Japanese artist Yoshio Markino (), a prominent figure on the early. Edwardian London through Japanese Eyes by William S. Rodner is an insightful study of Japanese artist and writer Yoshio Markino.
The investment hypothesis underpinning the Vision Fund centres around scale: a winner-takes-all strategy. They targeted companies with 50 to 80 per cent market share, and over-invested to enable these companies to grow fast and globally.
Efficient means getting your costs right and your profits right. Our view is that companies need to scale first. And for that, of course, they were going to need capital — and lots of it. Japan — and honed their sales pitch. In , between September and December, they travelled the world, meeting companies in the US, pension funds, sovereign wealth funds in Asia and the Middle East.
A strong Saudi delegation visited Tokyo in May A few days later, they received the Crown Prince at the palatial Geihinkan state guesthouse in central Tokyo. Six weeks later, the two men met again in Riyadh, the Saudi capital. Son visited Aramco, the state oil company, and spent time with the executives of the Saudi sovereign wealth fund. SoftBank, which had never managed third-party money at this scale and had never launched a regulated fund, now owned the biggest investment fund in history, equal to all the money raised by US VCs in the previous 30 months.
And did we get the first call for someone looking for capital two years ago? He was barefoot and had rolled up his shirt sleeves, revealing a Shamballa bracelet on one wrist. During the conversation, his mood shifted between enthusiastic and pensive, at which point he would pause and puff on an electronic cigarette. They come together on a regular basis to collectively review the spread of deals presented by individual partners. These ideas are then peer-reviewed, with due diligence being undertaken by an independent team in a rigorous vetting process that can take months to complete.
If there is consensus about an idea, the entrepreneur is then invited to sit down with Son, who meets every single founder before a deal is closed. He told me that I should absolutely expand to China — and consider spending a lot of time there. In November, we set up our first hotel in Shenzhen. We are now among the top five hotel chains in China. His ability to think far ahead is unparalleled.
I think that SoftBank was just the first to see that it could deploy much more capital and get big returns. It over-invests to anoint the winners. Companies have autonomy to pursue these partnerships, but these are often win-win synergies that can accelerate growth globally. Consider the example of Ping An Good Doctor, an AI provider of first-line healthcare, which signed an agreement with south-east Asian ride-sharing company Grab.
Oyo Rooms, has, through deploying a machine learning platform, managed to standardised its hotel experience globally — from tech-enabled check-ins to housekeeping. Paytm, an Indian mobile wallet startup that processes million transactions a month, recently launched PayPay in Japan with Yahoo! And then, of course, there is Arm. Boston Dynamics is also deploying Arm processors in the motor control of its latest robots. How do we process that data in order to make the world a better place — to make people happier, to enrich their lives, to provide better products and services?
