Formerly The Chicago Tokyo Group helped Sutter Hill Ventures manage Aksys Japan for over 12 years. Aksys Japan was established to commercialize the Aksys Home Hemodialysis System in Japan and to work with Japanese strategic partners, predominantly Teijin, which contributed substantial technical assistance and $21 million in cash. Unfortunately Aksys, Ltd. failed and its assets were sold to DEKA. We later closed Aksys Japan.
