After the first seven-figure financing deal, Christopher Burghardt, former managing director of Chargepoint Europe, Niels Ellwanger and Roman Dudenhausen, CEOs of con|energy ag, as well as energy concept developer Prof. Dr. Mike de Saldanha are now jointly investing in the e-mobility startup.
Founded in 2018 by Johann Olsen, Felix Kruse and Nabil Imran, the Flensburg-based startup IO-Dynamics has developed software for energy and charging management for vehicle fleets and was already able to secure seven-figure funding in June.
