LAUNCHING EUROPEAN MOBILITY COMPANIES INTO THE 
TRANSPORTATION REVOLUTION

Europe's leading investor in early-stage mobility start-ups

Our mission is to accelerate the world's transition to sustainable mobility by backing the best founders in European mobility start-ups. We invest in disruptive mobility start-ups with ambitious founders from Seed to Series A and onwards. Our experienced team includes entrepreneurs from Europe and Silicon Valley who partner with our companies as they scale to become global transportation leaders.

ABOUT

MobilityFund is an independent venture capital fund for European early-stage mobility start-ups. Our target sectors include connectivity, autonomy, shared mobility, electrification & mobility-related services (e.g. logistics and vehicles trading).

 

The fund's geographical target markets are the EU and selected non-EU countries (incl. UK, Norway, Switzerland, Israel and the US).

MobilityFund invests in early stage start-ups, usually from late Seed to Series A financing rounds. At this stage start-ups have typically started marketing their products or services, and are generating first revenues and seeking further capital to scale. MobilityFund’s role is to act as the first institutional investor and the go-to venture firm for mobility start-ups.

 

MobilityFund creates value by supporting its portfolio companies with its capital, expertise, and network.

"MobilityFund understood our potential early on when we had a product and initial sales, but not yet enough traction for generalist VC funds. They've been visionary, pragmatic, and supportive partners ever since."
