New venture fund seen linking Japan, Silicon Valley

SILICON VALLEY -- A $335 million venture capital firm whose founders include Mitsubishi Corp. and a former U.S. ambassador to Japan have begun making investments that the fund's Japanese backers hope will strengthen the pipeline between Japan and Silicon Valley.

Geodesic Capital partner John Roos led a law firm that represented startups before his appointment as ambassador, and he maintains a wide network in the industry. The fund's founders also include Ashvin Bachireddy, a former partner at major tech venture fund Andreessen Horowitz.
