The collaboration between the innovative startup IO-Dynamics and the established company Weiss+Appetito serves as an excellent example of how companies can address their challenges in the field of electromobility and energy management through digitalization. Both companies discovered their potential for a partnership after connecting at a speed dating event organized by startport GmbH, where startups and corporates networked with each other.
IO-Dynamics provides software solutions for optimal monitoring and control of charging and energy infrastructure in companies. Complementing their offering, Weiss+Appetito integrated their product "LiveCharger," a modular busbar-based charging infrastructure with compliant charging stations, into the IO-Dynamics platform. This collaboration ensured each charging point was effectively managed based on local conditions and made accessible for public use.
Hauke Lapschies, Chief Business Development Officer (CBDO) of IO Dynamics, expressed satisfaction with the successful test phase and the resulting partnership: "Partnering with an experienced company like Weiss+Appetito was an exciting experience for our startup. Our solution approaches complemented each other perfectly throughout the project, bringing us closer to our goals. The seamless integration of charging infrastructure and software-driven energy management is crucial for efficient electromobility, and that's precisely what we achieved together. We look forward to continuing our collaboration."
Maurice Simkins, Head of Product Development & Innovation at Weiss+Appetito, also praised the collaboration: "We were fortunate to meet IO-Dynamics at a startup corporate speed dating event hosted by startport. Their forward-looking backend approach focused on energy management aligns perfectly with our 'LiveCharger,' enabling us to offer customers an even more flexible and future-proof product. Following the successful completion of the pilot project, our shared objective now is to smartly and efficiently electrify company parking lots across Germany. I extend my gratitude and commendation to Hauke and the entire IO Dynamics team for their excellent cooperation."
The partnership between IO Dynamics and Weiss+Appetito exemplifies the synergy that emerges when innovative startups and established companies collaborate. Through the sharing of expertise, merging of technologies, and constructive teamwork, these two companies have combined their strengths to shape a sustainable future through efficient electromobility.
