Vancouver’s Asset Market has won a $150,000 investment from a cohort of angel investors through Vancouver Economic Commission’s Angels for Climate Solutions program.
Asset Market’s digital platform connects installers of EV chargers, telecoms and IoT devices with owners and operators of the land, building and structures where the devices will be placed.
The result? An 80 percent reduction in business costs and time associated with finding a suitable location, which helps to accelerate the path to a smarter, connected and more sustainable society.
Vancouver Economic Commission sat down with Asset Market’s CEO Jeff Davis to find out what’s next for Asset Market, now that they’ve secured the Angels for Climate Solutions prize investment.
“We’re full steam ahead on our commitment to reduce carbon emissions by accelerating the deployment of EV chargers – and hence accelerating EV adoption. In practice, this means that we will work hard in sales to sign up charging firms and landowners seeking charging capacity. We’ll also support them in using our tool to plan and deploy chargers at scale where they are most needed,” said Davis.
“In addition, we’ll continue to invest in our data and analytics. Our EV charging demand models currently cover Canada and parts of the US and UK. We plan to increase the geographic coverage and detail in our model to provide full coverage of each country this year. This will enable us to become a natural go-to tool for charging firms and landowners seeking to deploy chargers across multiple regions.”
Vancouver Economic Commission’s Angels for Climate Solutions program provides climate technology startups with the tools, training and confidence to develop and communicate business plans, with the goal of successfully pitching to investors and raising seed capital.
