Pole Capital supports Red-E e-scooters – 05/2017

“RedE” ELECTRIC SCOOTERS
MAKE A FIRST FUNDRAISING WITH POLE CAPITAL

May 30, 2017

RedE is pleased to announce a fundraiser from seed and acceleration capital company Pole Capital, a specialist in innovation and mobility.

After two years of R&D to design a new range of electric scooters, RedE launched the marketing of its offer to professional customers at the start of 2017. In a few months, the company convinced a large number of large accounts including Sushi Shop, Domino’s Pizza or Saveur & Vie in catering, but also Stuart or Amazon in express messaging. Other partnerships are underway with big names in FoodTech.

“Our ambition is to democratize the use of the electric scooter among delivery professionals. We show them that our scooters are ecological, and particularly profitable compared to those on the market, ”says Etienne MAO, president of RedE.

Pole Capital is participating as the sole investor in this first round. The fund will bring its know-how and experience in mobility, notably acquired through other sectoral holdings (Zenpark, Snapcar, Tako, Refund My Ticket, etc.).

“We feel a real craze among carriers for ecological delivery methods. Available for purchase or rental, our scooter has received excellent feedback from professional customers, notably thanks to our ancillary services, “said Valentin DILLENSCHNEIDER, General Manager of RedE.
