GO Sharing, an electric mobility startup founded in Nieuwegein, the Netherlands, has secured €50 million in funding from Opportunity Partners, as well as its own founders. To be precise, the funding was raised by Go Sharing's parent company, GO Green, but it appears that the e-moped operator will be the one benefiting from it.
Namely, GO Sharing is gearing up to expand its offering by adding e-bikes and electric cars to the mix. In that, it will be supported by its sister company GreenMo, which leases more than 10,000 e-bikes for delivery companies. Recently, GreenMo also acquired the Dutch startup E-bike to go and Belgium's zZoomer, a micromobility leasing operator.
“Users will soon be able to book e-bikes and electric cars in our app, in the same way that they already book shared mopeds now,” said GO Sharing CEO Raymon Pouwels in a statement. “The e-bikes are a healthy alternative for short trips in the city. The electric cars can be picked up at strategically located hubs in the urban periphery, so that they become part of the journey between cities.”
In addition to that, GO Sharing has announced the continuaion of its European expansion. It is currently active in the Netherlands, Austria (Vienna), and Belgium (Antwerp) — and plans to enter Germany, Turkey, and the UK in the coming months. GreenMo is already working in all three countries.
