Quick update ✌️

Hi all ! Our VC team specialized on Smart City topics (Climate, Mobility, Logistics, Proptech, Energy, Industrial Tech) is looking for a passionate Research Analyst intern to join the team, starting in July 2024 at our Paris office.

The past few months have been pretty active on our side :

  • **We just closed our Smart City II fund at €400m**
  • We have partnered with more exceptional founders transforming the way we power, move, make, work and live in our cities: 1komma5° (solar panel installer in Germany), Electra (fast charging stations for EV – raised €200m), DANCE (ebike subscription, you may have seen some of them in Paris or Berlin), Vay (teledriving service in cities), UrbanChain (leading provider of Peer-to-Peer energy exchange services in the UK)
  • Our topics are experiencing strong dynamics: Climate is the fastest growing trend in VC and we target sectors that are the most impactful to reduce CO2 emissions (energy, construction, mobility etc.).
  • We have kept on supporting our amazing portfolio companies in their unstoppable hustle towards becoming industry leaders. We sold two companies recently: Breezometer to Google and Meteoswift to Trailstone.
