Every day, millions of items are produced and sold throughout the world. At Mercari, we feel that too many of these items are thrown out before the end of their life cycle, creating needless waste and hurting the environment. Mercari's marketplace hopes to offer a solution to this problem by giving users in Japan and the America a safe and simple way to give their items new life.

The Mercari Fund invests in companies that embrace the sharing economy, C2C businesses, and other ventures that aim to create a more active global marketplace.
We also consider possible partnerships with our Mercari services when deciding which projects to invest in.

Through the Mercari Fund, we aim to create a marketplace for items and services of all kinds.


The Mercari Fund doesn't just provide financial assistance, but also makes use of Mercari's expertise and resources to support participating businesses.
