Securing Investments for a Sustainable Transport Vision

CityQ creates weather protected electric four-wheeled bike, designed for efficient and sustainable transport and delivery​

City Q required funding across multiple rounds to launch a new type of vehicle, a 4-wheeler e-bike. They were in need of both strategic and funding advice to navigate this process successfully. Additionally, they focused on enhancing their business development activities and establishing strategic partnerships and customer relationships to support the launch and growth of their new product.

How We Helped

We provided comprehensive support to CityQ, starting with an initial vetting process after which NovAzure made an initial cash investment. A sweat equity deal was agreed upon, through which we applied our resources to assist CityQ’s funding and business development activities in Europe.

Our support included a full assessment and refinement of CityQ’s pitch strategy, development of a comprehensive pitch deck, and management of a crowdfunding campaign on CrowdCube for initial bridge funding, complemented by engagement with additional business angels.

We facilitated accelerated learning by integrating the expertise of a key competitor’s CTO and his German network following the competitor’s insolvency.

Additionally, we established CityQ Ltd in the UK to kickstart its business activities and continued to support CityQ in navigating through its current and subsequent funding rounds, securing investments of over 1+10 million EUR by liaising with investors.

The Value We Created

We created value by successfully securing approximately €350k in funding through crowdfunding and engagements with business angels.

Our efforts led to the establishment of CityQ Ltd in the UK, which expanded their business presence in Europe.

Moreover, we played a crucial role in fostering key investor relations, which has ensured ongoing financial support and underpinned the business’s viability.
