We are a single LP VC investor. Our corporate backer EnBW Group drives the energy and mobility transition by building, owning and operating secure and stable infrastructure, which includes

  • renewable generation & trading,
  • grid infrastructure,
  • and Germany’s largest fast-charging-infrastructure for electric cars.

EnBW does the asset investments and the infrastructure roll-out. We like the vision of an all-electric world and look for scaling business models that digitally enable a faster asset-roll-out driving the sustainable energy & mobility transformation.

Our current investment topics

Sustainability Reporting

Sustainability reporting is not just a tool for transparency and accountability, but a valuable asset in driving business decisions. In the evolving landscape of corporate responsibility, we believe that startups that not only facilitate comprehensive sustainability reporting but also transform this data into actionable insights for daily business operations will be at the forefront. Harnessing these insights can lead to more sustainable practices, informed decision-making, and a competitive edge in the market.

Carbon Management

Carbon management is a critical component of the global effort to combat climate change and reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Given the pressing need to mitigate carbon footprints, we believe that startups offering digital solutions for carbon removal, especially those situated in close proximity to businesses, will flourish. We are on the lookout for startups with SaaS business models that facilitate effective and sustainable carbon management strategies.

Battery Solutions

Battery storages are an essential part of the energy transition enabling storage of renewable electricity. Due to the large battery infrastructure roll-out we believe that startups that make batteries more durable, efficient, and safe will thrive. We look for startups with SaaS business models enabling sustainable battery solutions.

Charging Solutions

We believe electric mobility will be the future and will go beyond cars. We look for startups that provide solutions and software to make charging convenient and accessible to everyone.


We believe that critical infrastructure needs to be secure in order to be sustainable. We are looking for business models that improve the security level for their customers.


We're always looking for startups that are driving the energy and mobility transition. If your startup offers a digital solution that makes infrastructure more sustainable, get in touch!
