General information


Ponooc’s venture capital fund provides growth capital to start-ups and scale-ups with a focus on sustainable energy or mobility solutions. We have a track record when it comes to energy related investments and an extensive network which we can leverage in the mobility industry. Exceptional opportunities which do not fit with these themes may be considered.

What we do

At Ponooc, we invest in ventures with a focus on sustainable energy (generation, distribution, storage) or mobility. The entrepreneurs we support have innovative ideas and are driven by a firm belief that those ideas will succeed. Our investments are used to accelerate the business and should help the company take “the next step”. We look for value creating exit opportunities within a reasonable timespan and in close cooperation with the management team.

What we offer

Our typical initial investment size ranges from 1 – 10 million euro’s in growth capital. We also have the means to make follow on investments in subsequent rounds. We look for a relevant minority shareholding. Because we are a family owned fund we do not have a firm investment horizon although this is typically 4-7 years.

We’re a pro-active shareholder and are happy to support management when needed. We believe in working together and because of this we look for great chemistry with the teams that we invest in.

Ponooc is a family owned fund which has close ties to the Pon concern. This offers many opportunities when we can leverage its network of clients, suppliers and industry knowledge to help make the ideas of the companies we invest in become reality.
