Skytree’s first of a kind process removes CO2 and H2O from indoor car cabins by harnessing life-support technology originally developed at the European Space Agency. A Skytree air purifier enables the full recirculation of internal cabin air which in turn leads to up to 25% extension in electric vehicle range and a significant reduction in pollution allowed into the cabin. Skytree has achieved over €400K of revenue in R&D contracts and paid demonstrations from two global car manufacturers. Visit our round here.

Gearbooker, the P2P marketplace for renting creative equipment, reached its minimum amount in under 2 days, which made our round successful already. However, our mission does not stop here: the goal for this round is to raise €80-100K, out of which we have ~65% for now. What keeps us busy these days? Currently, we are prepping for 2 festivals/events in the film/TV/broadcasting industry in Rotterdam and Amsterdam. That’s a great way to interact with our current and future userbase! Also, these are 2 important cities for us, as many of our transactions take place there. Feel free to contact us if you’d like to know more, and don’t forget to have a look at our platform.
