    The Venture Group of global consumer electronics leader Panasonic creates technology partnerships between private companies and research and development units of Panasonic. To promote strong strategic alliances, venture capital investments are made in companies that present a technology based advantage to Panasonic. PVG is a co-investor, making minority investments alongside other industry-leading venture capital firms and corporate strategic investors. Since 1998, PVG has invested in more than thirty companies. Investments are typically in the range of $1 to 3 million, funding proven technology at post-A rounds. Panasonic Corporation announced (March of 2017) that it will establish a new company, Panasonic Ventures, LLC, in April 2017. The new venture capital firm will invest in start-up companies mainly in the United States, with initial investments of around $100 million.
