I was introduced to Gideon by co-founder Pieter Waller. I met Pieter at the rEVolution event in Amsterdam two years ago. It’s been fascinating to watch their growth, including an A-round of fundraising, and a partnership with Porsche. Gideon share some really valuable insights from that journey, in particular we talk luck and resilience!

About Chargetrip

Driving an electric car is amazing but should be anxiety-free. Chargetrip gives developers the tools to make routing and charging effortless for EV drivers and electrified fleets.

Our routing engine uses over fifteen different variables to calculate the real-time range of any electric vehicle. Temperature, weather, charge speed, elevation, rolling resistance, real-time vehicle data, and availability of charge stations are all taken into account. Chargetrip’s routing algorithms calculate the best route to a driver’s destination, with the optimal charge stations in between. Build-in predictive models optimize for total travel-time and travel-costs. Chargetrip makes it easy for anyone to drive beyond the range of the battery.
Chargetrip has received over 2M in funding and has won several innovation and sustainability awards. Chargetrip is a proud EEx portco, the premier clean-tech accelerator.
