Yaletown Venture Partners, the Vancouver, BC-based startup investor, said today that one of its founding partners, Kirk Washington, has opened up an office in Seattle.

Yaletown made the announcement at the Venture Northwest Conference in Portland, OR, according to a statement on the firm’s website.  The firm, which raised funds in 2003 and 2008, has about $160 million Canadian dollars under management, according to its website.

Washington, from his base in Seattle, will focus on cleantech investments, Yaletown said. The firm already has a local cleantech investment in Seattle-based EnerG2, plus tech investments in Seattle-based Mixpo and Portland, OR-based Thetus.
