VENTURE CAPITAL: SMART CITY
Our Smart City practice boasts 20 years of cumulative experience at Idinvest Partners in both energy and digital technology companies. Our goal is to capture the exciting growth opportunities in smart city, smart energy and new mobility which are driven by the rapid adoption of data-driven services and digitalized solutions.
Electranova Capital II, our main investment vehicle, is a venture fund dedicated to Smart Cities and sponsored by strategic and institutional investors. Electranova Capital II is the successor fund of Electranova Capital I, which was successfully launched in 2012 with EDF, Allianz and BPI, and independently managed by Idinvest. The team also manages Ecomobility Ventures, a multi-corporate venture fund dedicated to clean mobility technologies and sponsored by SNCF, Total, Orange, Air Liquide and Michelin.
We aim to identify and support outstanding entrepreneurs by providing them with access to the strong network we have built over the past two decades. This is comprised of strategic sponsors, industry leaders and decision-makers from around the world. We also support these entrepreneurs in implementing best-in-class cross-border partnerships from “West to East” (US start-ups to grow in Europe, European start-ups to grow in Asia), recognizing the dynamic growth of Smart Cities companies in the global sphere.
We are now welcoming new strategic investors to join us in Electranova Capital II and continue to develop this successful model.
