World Innovation Lab

I’m Vicky Shum (GSB ‘03), currently at a venture & innovation firm World Innovation Lab founded by my GSB classmate Gen Isayama. We are looking for a summer intern to help drive our efforts in venture investment and in business development among portfolio companies and corporate partners, focusing on retail and consumer packaged goods (esp. food and beauty).

Founded in 2013, we have about $800M asset under management and make multi-stage investments in consumer and enterprise tech companies in Japan/ Asia and US. We are unique in that our 20+ investors are leading global corporations, including Sony, Nissan, 7-Eleven, KDDI, NTT, and more. Which means:
Our portfolio companies have a built-in network of potential corporate customers, strategic partners, and even acquirers.
In addition to our investment activities, we also drive digital transformation and innovation within our corporate partners with advisory services and funding for spin-outs and JVs.

We are a team of cross-culture investors, operators, and entrepreneurs, and we’d love to connect with you and your members about joining our growing team this summer. You can learn more about the position and our firm here: . Looking forward to connecting!
