Shun Nagao

Venture Partner

Born in Switzerland and bred in Japan, I will make excellent cheese fondue one day, and a succulent beef tataki the next day.

Prior to joining White Star Capital in 2017, I was Executive Director of the Silicon Valley Japan Platform where I connected Japanese blue-chip companies to Silicon Valley counterparts. I originally started my career in Investment Banking at Morgan Stanley, then worked at Goldman Sachs as well as the World Economic Forum. I concurrently manage the Japan operations of BowerGroup Asia, a strategic advisory company with Fortune 500 clients.

For the last decade, I have truly enjoyed connecting people, capital and markets in a trans-national manner, and I really enjoy my work at White Star Capital being able to do this with the entrepreneurs we engage with.

I’ve picked up triathlon training in the recent years, but I still enjoy hitting the ski slopes during the winter.

A-ha is my favorite band, and the person that has inspired me the most is South African activist Steve Biko.
