Stellantis acquires AImotive

We are thrilled to congratulate the AIMotive Team and its founder, Laszlo Kishonti on being acquired by one of the biggest mobility providers in the world. 7 years ago, when we first invested in the company then called ADASWorks we might have hoped something like this. László believed before others that the future of the car is software and not hardware. We were pleased to be among the first institutional investors backing their vision with partners such as Inventure and RBVC.

Why we invested in Volteum

As the fleet electrification is happening faster than anyone previously imagined, the charging infrastructure will be a bottleneck for a long time, thus charging optimization will be the key feature for any fleet managers. We have a  conviction that the Volteum team is going to be a decisive player in the global market. We are delighted to join the journey of Zsófi, Dávid, Kornél, and Krisztián and the Volteum team, by leading their EUR 1,2 million seed round.
