Venture investing platform OurCrowd is taking home an investment of its own this week. The Israel-based company announced today it received $60 million in capital from Japan-based ORIX. The investment brings OurCrowd’s total funding to $172 million.

The goal of the funding and strategic partnership is to bring opportunities for Israel-based startups in the Asia region and will strengthen trade between the two regions.

“We are excited about investing in OurCrowd, Israel’s most active venture investor and one of the world’s most innovative venture capital platforms,” said ORIX UK CEO Kiyoshi Habiro. “We intend to be active partners with OurCrowd and help them accelerate their already impressive growth, while bringing the best of Israeli tech to Japan’s large industrial and financial sectors.”

Today’s deal isn’t the first time OurCrowd has made Japanese ties. Last year the company teamed up with Toyota Tsusho Corporation, a Japanese general trading company, to scout for startups that support autonomous driving industry.
