With HeyCharge’s technology, it becomes attractive to install chargers in locations that before would have not been commercially viable.” This latest round of funding gives HeyCharge, the financial backing and resources to make this happen. To get there, the company is ramping up hardware production, accelerating our hardware roadmap to include hardware devices for Europe and the United States, and hiring engineers, go-to-market leaders, and operations experts to help it deliver best-in-the-industry user experience to the coming wave of EV drivers around the world. Hey Charge has already started commercial, revenue-generating installations of sites across Germany powered by its unique SecureCharge technology. “We are excited to use this investment to scale our product globally and bring low-cost charging options to consumers. HeyCharge’s solution makes EV charging not just scalable but also more cost-effective and accessible so that easy EV charging is made possible wherever you live or work, said Chris Cardé, Founder and CEO, HeyCharge. “We are thrilled to be working with BMW i Ventures in this round and look forward to using this investment to scale our product globally and bring low-cost charging options to consumers.” The post HeyCharge raises $4.7M in seed funding round appeared first on My Startup World - Everything About the World of Startups!.
