We build and grow promising energy startups from the pilot phase onwards. For us energy means electricity, heat and all other possible forms of energy. The innovation can relate to energy savings, production, smart grids, storage, mobility, trade or something else that involves energy. Our portfolio companies have strong teams, they solve clear problems, have bold visions and target global markets. The business models are scalable and not too capital intensive. We are happy to offer facilities for pilot projects and actively support your development. Our first investment is typically between €100k and €500k.
Transition into a sustainable energy system requires major changes to the operating models of our energy system. Not only energy production, but the way grids are managed, energy consumed and stored, the way we travel and heat/cool our homes has to change, to name a few. The transition will require a lot of innovation. Solving the energy challenge is extremely important to human kind, but might also be the greatest opportunity of our time.
Introducing new technology to critical energy infrastructure is not easy, but co-operation with incumbent corporations can provide a fast track to the market. Grid.vc offers an unique combination of financing, industry expertise and business partners.
