Japanese footballer Keisuke Honda is swapping football for finance

Japanese footballer Keisuke Honda is swapping football for finance, after launching a venture capital fund with Hollywood star Will Smith to invest in startups addressing social problems, the striker’s agent said Wednesday.

The Dreamers Fund, set up in April in Los Angeles, aims to raise about $100 million from investors, with Japanese brokerage giant Nomura Holdings serving as “the anchor investor”, Honda’s management firm KSK Group said in a statement.

“I hope to change the lives of people in the US, Japan and the world for the better through the Dreamers Fund,” Honda was quoted as saying in the statement.
