SunBridge Partners, a venture capital firm targeting investments in global leaders in enterprise software in the US and Japan, sold its holdings in Marketo KK (“Marketo Japan”), the Japan Joint Venture between Marketo, an Adobe company, and SunBridge, to Adobe as part of Adobe’s acquisition of Marketo for $4.75B.
SunBridge Partners teamed with Marketo in 2013 to establish its Japan operations via SBP’s proven Japan-entry Joint Venture model. Previous SunBridge Japan entry JVs also include Concur Japan, Kyriba Japan and Demandware Japan.
SunBridge worked closely with Marketo to identify the highest caliber of leadership for Marketo Japan, including President Yasutaka Fukuda, and partnered with the team to help maximize the growth and success of the Japan business.
