Amsterdam-based TAP Electric raises €1 million seed to make the transition to electric easier for drivers


Tap Electric, a Dutch startup focused on improving driver experience with solutions for electric vehicle drivers and charger owners, announced it has closed €1 million seed funding round led by LUMO Labs, Shamrock Ventures and Fair Capital Partners Impact Investing. Tap Electric has two key products: a driver app, known for its industry-leading price transparency features and ease of use, and a platform for charger owners and installers to collect payments and manage their hardware. Notably, Tap Electric is the only platform in the market where charge owners and installers don’t pay any fees, an important business model innovation enabled by a high degree of automation. “We’re thrilled to have the support of such experienced investors who share our vision of delivering brilliant driver experience at the intersection of grid and mobility,” said Nico Spoelstra, CEO and Co-Founder of Tap Electric. “This funding round gives us not only the capital required to execute our mission at pace, but also the strategic support we need to accelerate our impact.” Accessible charging solutions are at the core of their business to make the transition to electric easier for drivers, while bringing together mobility with renewable power, directly impacting SDGs 7 (Affordable and Clean Energy) & 11 (Sustainable Cities and Communities).
