Hey everyone! I have a challenge for you: Let's put together a list of cool startups working in Energy/Mobility around Europe.
I faced a problem about a year ago: I wanted to know what kind of startups were there around Europe working with energy/mobility products. I wanted to spot some companies that I could see myself joining and I couldn't find a good resource.
Why not? It seems that every list was either too filtered (only InnoEnergy backed projects, for example) or full of a combination of very early-stage university spinoffs without an actual product or market and corporate spinoffs that don't really hire. There's nothing wrong with those, it was just not what I was looking for. I kinda created the habit of doing search rounds from time to time, and follow the companies I came across on LinkedIn, Twitter, etc.
It turns out that my approach of following these companies everywhere online it's good to make news come my way, but not very effective if I just want to take a look at all of them. Today I decided to start putting them together as a list and though that this is a perfect opportunity to collaborate here and 1) share it with everyone 2) gather more interesting ones to the list.
I would love to have your help building an awesome list. Drop your suggestions in the comment section, or send me a message directly.
Please just add some supporting notes on why you think they are interesting (nothing strict, I just want to avoid pure name-dropping)
- Any suggestions on how to improve this, just shoot
Criteria for companies:
(work in progress - will add more later as I try to understand why I found these companies legit)
- Being based in the EU
- Having an actual product to sell and a market
- English-friendly (website or job offers in English)
