Our Company

Established in 2013, Makuake is Japan’s go to platform where makers and consumers are empowered to create a world where innovation flourishes.

To date over 15,000 new products and services have been launched on Makuake, positively impacting a vast variety of sectors from household goods, fashion, technology, education, restaurants, beverages, fragrance, hygiene, beauty, micromobility, entertainment, art, cooking tools and more.

Initially established as a crowdfunding platform, Makuake has challenged both the crowdfunding and e-commerce market by creating a new way of shopping that is holistic and meaningful. Backed by a quarterly access of over 10M unique users and a repeat purchase rate of over 70%,  Makuake’s track record speaks for itself and validates its standing as a game changer.

Makuake’s screening process of launched products and services ensures reliability for customers that revel in being able to shop from the birthplace of innovation. 

Makuake also supports makers ranging the full spectrum from highly traditional businesses with over 100 years of craftsmanship history to global companies such as CANON that seek to innovate in their industry and reach the right audience. 

Now seeking to go beyond Japan, we welcome you to the global version of the site so that savvy consumers such as yourself from around the world can also get first access to Japan’s greatest creations.
