GROWTH CAPITAL FOR SME EXPANSION STRATEGIES BETWEEN EUROPE AND ASIA

Why Toppako?

OUR PHILOSOPHY

Toppako comes from Japanese kanji 突破口, meaning «Breakthrough».

We believe EU and Asian SMEs have a unique opportunity to join forces and build stronger businesses together, potentially leading to extraordinary results for investors, management, customers and employees.

OUR VISION

YOUR CHANCE

With many free trade agreements between Europe and Asian countries being signed bilaterally- while other major trading blocs adopt more protectionist policies – the pace of the digital transformation, and the upcoming middle class of consumers representing a third of the world’s population are undoubtedly the 3 most significant long term trends reshaping the business environment for companies in EU and Asia.

OUR MISSION

YOUR CHALLENGE

But as promising as such alliances can be, success is far from given…

Besides adequate structuring and local resources on the ground, they require a solid understanding of the cultural, geographic and leadership differences at play, and call for the indispensable long term perspective and management commitment needed for such far-reaching transformational initiatives.

About us
