TOKYO -- Japan's Aozora Bank is joining with Genesis Alternative Ventures, a Singapore-based venture debt fund, to share know-how in lending to startups and help Japanese clients enter the Southeast Asian market.

Genesis, whose founders include alumni of DBS Venture Growth Partners, provides young companies with debt financing through bonds and loans, rather than investing in equity.
