Let’s move. Our energy.
To a sustainable future.

We invest in the decarbonisation of power, transport and buildings.

Investment Criteria Energy Transition Fund

Energy Transition

The fund invests in early stage start-ups and scale-ups that are supportive to the energy transition. Move Energy invests in companies making a tangible impact towards achieving net-zero targets, with a focus on power, transport, and buildings.

Late Seed to Series B

We focus on Series A rounds, but will also consider Late Seed and Series B investments. As a general rule, ventures should have found first product market fit before we invest, after which we are ready to accelerate growth by supporting the further development of product, channels, organization, etc.

Hardware and Software

Both hardware and software propositions (or a combination of both) are in scope of our energy transition fund. We believe that software and hardware investments are necessary to achieve our net-zero targets for 2030 and 2050.

€2.5m - €5m

Our ideal initial ticket ranges between €2.5m and €5m, and we can continue to support in subsequent financing rounds up to €10m per portfolio company.

Western Europe

We invest throughout Western Europe with a strong focus on the Netherlands.

Our value add

01

Deep domain knowledge

We have profound knowledge of the energy market and investment domain, assessing many leads and deploying capital in energy transition projects and companies.

02

Entrepreneurial edge

Our team relates to founders based on their own experiences, e.g. building a wind project developer, setting up a SME mezzanine debt fund, and venture building.

03

Broad transaction experience

Having led 100+ transactions in PE, VC and corporate M&A, our team understands the do’s and don’ts in deal making, how to capitalize on momentum, and what red flag indicators are.

04

Network in the sector

Our connections in the renewable energy and mobility sector contribute to quality sector-specific deal sourcing, deal assessment, and value-add to our portfolio companies.

05

Sustainability at our core

Our team is intrinsically motivated to make a measurable impact and accelerate the energy transition while also generating an attractive financial return.

06

Capital structuring expertise

We have strong capabilities in the non-dilutive financing space, which is essential for hardware investments as these are often capital-intensive and require specific debt structuring knowledge.
