Launch of ENIO financing campaign triggers large-scale media response

Public

Dear Companists,

 

First off, thank you for your trust and for investing in ENIO! We have already received numerous requests, suggestions and comments from Companists. Thank you very much for taking the time to share with us!

Our crowdfunding campaign had already generated interest in numerous media reports, even prior to the launch, and is now a topic for discussion in specialist media dedicated to e-mobility and renewable energy. A list of media reports can be accessed on the ENIO website. However, we will also present a selection in this update.

For example, German portal Wirtschaftswoche Green (among others) has compared ENIO's potential with that of AirBnB and Uber. This is not a bad comparison - however, our business model will not be faced with as many obstacles as these companies, which are both valued at billions of euros. But our innovative approach is very similar. The e-mobility community has expressed a lot of interest in our project and we have already received feedback from local partners for approx. 30 charging stations that could be integrated into a cooperative charging system at short notice.

 

Demand for e-charging infrastructure on the rise

The most recent announcement of the Chevrolet Bolt (available in the US as of 2016 and as an Opel in Europe as of early 2017) will introduce a true game changer in e-mobility. The all-electric vehicle that is going to stir up the mass market boasts range and performance data similar to that of the Tesla S, while the price is more reminiscent of the Golf range at less than EUR 30,000. The Bolt, with its 300 km range and acceleration from 0 to 100km/h in just over 7 seconds, fulfils the relevant criteria that, according to a new BITKOM study, 7 of 10 Germans consider deciding factors when purchasing an e-car. The Chevrolet Bolt, as the pioneer of a new generation of automobiles that also includes the Tesla 3 and a new Nissan Leaf (each with a range of more than 300 km and available for the price of a mid-range car) will significantly increase the demand for ENIO's intelligent charging infrastructure.

 

Press Review

Trend, 15.01.2016, an Austrian weekly magazine reports on our Companisto crowdfunding campaign:

"(...) Start-up ENIO from Vienna launches a financing round on 19.01. The company operates a network of charging stations for electric cars throughout Europe."

 

The Kurier, another large weekly newspaper, wrote the following in their print version on 21.01.2016:

"Companisto currently has five start-ups in its portfolio. Since Tuesday, this also includes Viennese business ENIO that wants to develop a pan-European network of charging stations for electric cars. The goal is to collect EUR 500,000 in venture capital from the crowd over the course of the next 58 days."

 

FONDS professionell, 20.01.2016, the magazine for investment managers reports:

"ENIO, a start-up from Vienna that operates a network of charging stations for electric cars, to launch a financing round shortly."

 

The Green Economy blog on Wirtschaftswoche, 22.01.2016, states that:

"The two businessmen from Vienna want to develop 'youCharge', a network of privately owned charging stations that will be made available to members. (...) The market for e-mobility infrastructure is big and will, according to experts, generate approx. EUR 3.5 billion in 2020. The two 'youCharge' founders recognized this trend: Six years ago, they were already talking about linking charging stations for electric cars throughout Europe with a software-as-a-solution approach. That is when the idea for the ENIO-portal, so far the only charging station search engine, was born."

 

Automobilwoche, an industry and business newspaper for the entire automobile sector, interviewed us on 28.01.2016:

"An Austrian start-up is attempting to transform private households into profit-oriented operators of e-charging stations and, at the same time, solve the charging infrastructure problem (...) Enio, which was founded in 2013, is trying to generate, by means of a crowdfunding campaign, the necessary capital to enable each and every home owner to install a cheap and networked charging point on their property that is available to the public."

 

And finally, Ingenieur.de, a news portal for engineers and fans of technology wrote on 20.01.2016:

"Looking for extra income? We can show you how to become an e-charging attendant (...) The biggest stumbling block for e-mobility is the puny charging infrastructure. A small start-up from Vienna is trying to make a fundamental change. With the help of youCharge, private individuals can now operate a charging point on their property and become real charging station attendants."

NOTE:

Investments in crowdfunding projects offer great opportunities, but they are risk investments. In the worst case, the entire investment amount may be lost. Consequently, these investments are unsuitable for retirement plans. However, there is no obligation to make further contributions. Investors can minimize their risk by splitting their investment amount between crowdfunding campaigns rather than investing all of it in one crowdfunding campaign. Professional investors often follow this strategy because it causes the risk to be distributed among several investments. In this way, successful investments can balance other less successful investments.

The shares of the Companists are subordinated profit-participating loans (partiarische Nachrangdarlehen). Such loans are shares in a business with similar characteristics as equity. If the company becomes insolvent or is liquidated, the claims of the Companists – just like those of all other shareholders of the company – will be satisfied from the assets in the insolvency or the assets in liquidation only after the claims of all other external creditors have been satisfied. Thus, Companists are treated like any other shareholder of the company during insolvency or liquidation proceedings.

The company information published on the Companisto website is provided solely by the companies. The projections made by the companies do not guarantee successful development of the company in the future. Consequently, crowdfunding investments are suitable only for those investors who can cope with the risk of a total loss of the capital invested. Investors make their own independent investment decisions and bear all risks themselves.

The investments are provided and issued by the individual companies. Companisto is neither the provider nor the issuer of the investments, but solely the internet service platform.
