"Better Place, the closely watched start-up that hopes to create vast networks of charge spots to power electric cars
, is set to receive a vote of confidence on Monday, in the form of $350 million in new venture capital
"Although Better Place
will most likely require billions more in financing, this investment is an important step for the company and its chief, Shai Agassi, an Israeli-American software executive who founded the company in 2007.
"Better Place is a huge experiment in how you sell and fuel vehicles, and these investors are becoming convinced this will make money, said Rod Lache, an analyst at Deutsche Bank. It is a financial validation. Now we need to see technical validation and consumer validation."
