Aquabit Spirals Raises $325,000 in a Seed Round

Aquabit Spirals, a Tokyo-based startup has announced 40 million yen (approximately $325,000) funding from K&P Partners in a seed round.

Launched in 2009, Aquabit Spirals has been developing O2O (offline to online) solutions using NFC (near field communication) technology. It showcased its Smart Plate in  Spring 2015 Season batch of the Orange Fab Asia incubation program.

By managing linked information with codes via the cloud, the Smart Plate leads the user to the information by redirecting access destination, even enabling the NFC chip campaign owners to integrally manage information via the cloud with a specialized app.


A prototype of the Smart Plate device showcased at Orange Fab Asia Demo Day. This can be put on books laid sideways at bookstores and help customers reach supplemental information on mobile.

Aquabit Spirals was selected a Top 10 finalist in the Startup Launchpad Area competition at Echelon Thailand 2015, a startup showcase event taking place in Bangkok last week. They also recently won the Shibuya second prize in the Tokyu Accelerate Program, a startup acceleration program by Tokyu Corporation, one of Tokyo’s leading private railway companies, in association with IMJ Investment Partners. With the support of Tokyu, Aquabit Spirals will start test marketing the Smart Plate device in January of 2016.
