EVE: Making it Easier to Own an Electric Vehicle

EVE is an e-mobility solution project in the process of being founded by two postgrad students in Entrepreneurship at Trinity Business School, Sarah Rust and Oana Rosca. 

When Sarah’s father wanted to buy an electric car in Germany, he soon became very discouraged because of range anxiety: there aren’t enough charging points in Germany and switching to an EV would have seriously affected his family’s freedom of movement. 

The start-up aims to provide a ​P2P network of private charging stations for electric cars​. Customers can charge their car anywhere and make a passive income from their unused charging station at home.

 The Team

The founders have a combined business experience of 12 years. Sarah has worked in the automotive industry and the startup industry for the past three years and brings energy and connections with both the automotive and startup sector. Oana has 9 years of experience in tech management roles in different industries and has a network of software developers that she will leverage to build the product. 

Where We Are Now

The founders have analysed the idea from different perspectives during their studies of Entrepreneurship and have applied the concepts taught in the programme. They have participated in the LaunchPad Sprints Incubator November 2019 and won 2nd place on the Sprints Final Pitch competition. This secured them a place on the TES Incubator. 

Plans for the Future

While they are working on fine-tuning their concept and assembling the puzzle pieces of their idea, Sarah and Oana are ambitious about the future. 

In the short term, they are eager to join LaunchBox 2020 and are busy preparing their application to the programme. By the end of the year, they plan on launching an MVP in Germany and other European markets in the upcoming years. 

In the long term, they want to explore and pursue new ways of increasing sustainability in day to day life through the sharing economy.
