Masdar/SBI May Up Investment In Japanese Cleantech Start-Ups

Feb 2 2009 | 9:01am ET

Abu Dhabi’s Masdar Clean Tech Fund and Japan’s SBI Holdings may invest up to $300 million in Japanese alternative energy start-ups through their newly established joint investment fund, Reuters reports.

Masdar and SBI have each contributed $10 million to create the fund, which will invest in “early stage investments in prominent alternative energy-related companies in Japan.” Each firm would receive around $2 million.

SBI officials said they were in talks with Masdar to increase investment to $200 million to $300 million, once the first $20 million fund has been used.

The Masdar initiative of the Abu Dhabi government aims to develop and commercialize clean energy technologies.
