We’re thrilled to be named as EV Startup of the Year finalists at this year’s EVIEs awards, and it’s great to see so many other brilliant start-ups and businesses sitting alongside us too.
As the world’s leading event series driving collaboration, innovation and creating new partnerships in the EV space, The EVIEs showcase excellence and innovation within the emerging EV sector, awarding those who are changing the way we live, work and travel to make our roads smarter and safer and our air cleaner.
Award categories include: Chargepoint Manufacturer of the year, Fleet Electrification Strategy of the Year and Best New Product or Service.
Founders Ashley Tate and Chris Dalrymple started Mina with a clear goal in mind – making it easy to charge electric vehicles (EVs). For both new entrants to the EV world, seasoned electric converts, and fleet operators alike, the current infrastructure around EV charging is fragmented and unnecessarily complicated. At Mina, we aim to remove the complexity and make things simple.
For EV owners, this means making home chargers affordable and energy tariffs easy to understand. For fleet operators, it means making it simple to pay back employees for the energy they’ve used when charging at home and taking the headache out of installing chargers in employees homes.
The ‘EV Start-Up Business of the year’ award is specially designed to celebrate the achievements of start-up companies and new entrants to the EV market, and co-founder Chris said; “This feels like the icing on the cake for an incredible first 12 months for Mina. To be shortlisted alongside some brilliant startups, especially those who have been around a lot longer than us, is a great achievement. I’m really proud of the whole team, and have fingers crossed for the final!”
For Mina Energy, this nomination is the culmination of an exciting year; securing financial investments of over £350k, partnering with Mitie green fleets, a new central Sheffield office location and welcoming talented new team members and advisors to the growing company.
The future is certainly electric!
