Nimbus One City

Ponooc is an independent venture capital fund based in the Netherlands with a focus on sustainable mobility and energy across Europe.

We focus on Sustainable Mobility & Energy

We love ideas that stand out! At Ponooc, we invest in ventures with a focus on sustainable mobility and energy. Our investments are used to accelerate the business and should help the company take “the next step”. We have a proven track-record of successful start-ups and scale-ups in the mobility and energy space. We understand the mobility and energy market, and can support you throughout the entire process to become successful.

Expertise in the Mobility sector

Ponooc is an independent Dutch venture capital fund with close ties to Pon Holdings. Pon Holdings is one of the largest family-owned businesses in the Netherlands and a conglomerate in the transport sector, which, among other things, sells vehicles and bicycles worldwide. We can leverage our network and knowledge to the start-ups we invest in, while remaining an independent financial investor. 

We are a pro-active Shareholder

We are a hands-on investor, and it is important to us that the entrepreneur stays in the driver’s-seat. Our typical initial investment size ranges from 1–4 million euros in growth capital across Europe and we look for a relevant minority shareholding. We have the means to make follow-on investments in subsequent rounds and look for value creating exit opportunities within a reasonable timespan and in close cooperation with the management team. We do not have a firm investment horizon although typically we are invested for 4 –7 years.
