Softbank is a giant corporation in Japan.  Think Berkshire Hathaway but more tech focused.  They are the second largest publicly traded company in Japan (behind Toyota).

I've heard others say they launder a lot of money.  I'm not sure if it is true

I had never heard of it until We Work blew up in its face. Now I just can't shake that impression of incompetence.

He's well on his way. Turns out Softbank was heavily manipulating American stocks during the big corona run up.

Softbank was the biggest player in mobile phones in Japan, and probably still is. Their other ventures are basically playing around money, including WeWork. They can afford to lose money on these other things.

It's like Bezos and Blue Origin. The main business built a fortune that funds the side ventures.
