Osborne Clarke has advised eCAPITAL on the venture capital investor-led financing round for Numbat. As part of the financing round, the seed investors, including sonnen founder Christoph Ostermann, also increased their investments.

The cleantech start-up Numbat from Kempten (Allgäu) combines three worlds with its patented technology: A fast charging column (HPC) for the trendy topic of e-mobility, an integrated battery storage for energy management solutions and all this with an environmentally friendly approach to climate change, especially with the patented multi-lifecycle concept. 

With the successful financing round, Numbat wants to continue its growth course with a mid-double-digit million amount in Germany and Europe and revolutionise the energy and mobility market. 600 additional systems are already planned for 2023. With this, Numbat is accelerating the expansion of further locations for a nationwide fast charging network to achieve its goal of becoming the leading provider of fast charging infrastructure in Europe.
