Sakti3 is a University of Michigan spinoff run by CEO (and U of M professor) Ann Marie Sastry. Sastry has not released many specifics about her company, however Sakti3 plans to infuse about $1.1 million into the Ann Arbor economy and create 112 new jobs. They hope to commercialize a manufacturing process in Ann Arbor for the development of high-power automotive batteries primarily for electric vehicles.
Both companies fit the bill for “knowledge-based” jobs that support a global economy. Each have already secured high-tech tax credits from the Michigan Economic Develop Corp. If these companies hit their goals, they would become two of the largest Ann Arbor companies in the alternative energy and IT sectors.
