German startup Cardino successfully closed a €1 million pre-seed round, with Silence VC and FJ Labs leading, and involvement from distinguished investors like Asymmetric Capital Partners, DEPO Ventures, Voyagers.io, Inclimo, Gaingels, and other industry experts as business angels. The unique C2B model utilises battery health analysis, digital inspections, and real-time market data to streamline transactions, ensuring sellers and buyers receive an unmatched experience. Borja Moreno de los Rios of Silence VC praised the Cardino team: “I am a sucker for marketplace nerds. So now we can safely say they are not just nerds but also outstanding operators.” Founders, Henrik Sachs (CEO) and Lukasz Pajak (COO), with backgrounds from McKinsey, Rocket Internet, and Delivery Hero, are steering Cardino with the vision of “making EV transactions as simple as a Sunday drive”. It signifies a strong commitment to combatting climate change, pushing forward sustainable transportation, and championing a greener future.”
