Feb 17, 2020

FIXER Inc. (Head Office: Minato-ku, Tokyo; President and Representative Director: Seiichi Matsuoka, hereinafter "FIXER") has raised a total of 1.2 billion JPY in Series A round of financing, from Mirai Creation Fund II (two) operated by SPARX Group Co., Ltd (Head Office: Minato-ku, Tokyo; President and Group CEO: Shuhei Abe, hereinafter "SPARX") as well as other investors. FIXER will use the funds to strengthen its core business "cloud.config", a fully managed service for public clouds; and to develop innovative products in both Fintech and the public sector to enhance support and contribute to clients' challenges.


Background and Purpose of Financing
Established in 2009, FIXER's objective is to contribute to society, by supporting its clients, both enterprises and municipalities and its employees to take on their challenges, using Cloud and AI technologies. This objective is fully reflected in the company's corporate statement "Technology to FIX your challenges".

FIXER's flagship solution "cloud. config" is a fully managed service, providing design, implementation, operation, monitoring and maintenance for public clouds, such as Microsoft Azure and AWS. This service relieves customers from all infrastructure and cloud-related troubles and enables them to simply focus on services and application development.
On top of this, FIXER is developing highly versatile applications and services to promote the use of public clouds. In September 2019, FIXER launched "Hokkoku Cloud Banking", Japan's first Internet banking system inside Microsoft Azure.
Furthermore, as FIXER believes that fostering human resources is key to accelerate Digital Transformation in the public cloud and AI market in enterprises and municipalities, the company is engaging in the education business by opening a "cloud AI school" in both Tokyo and Mie prefecture's Yokkaichi.
Since its establishment, FIXER has seen a steady expansion of its business at a growth rate of approximately 50% year-over-year without relying on external investors.
