Dec 17, 2012 (M2 PRESSWIRE via COMTEX) -- Fuller, Inc, a Japan-based technology startup, announces the closing of a 100 million yen ($1.2m) seed round. The round is being led by m8 Capital and ASAHI Net. m8 Capital is a London-based venture capital firm that invests in mobile technology companies and ASAHI Net is a Tokyo-based Internet Service Provider (ISP) that offers internet access services as well as cloud application services.
