About Us

Electro venture holdings Pty Ltd advancing sustainable innovation

We believe now is the best time to be investing in clean tech to help Australia’s energy transition towards net zero emissions. 

We already have a diverse portfolio of market-leading sustainable ecosystem companies that we have either founded and grown from the ground up or invested in at an early stage. We are now focused on finding, nurturing and growing other complementary sustainability innovation companies that are solving real-world renewable energy and electric mobility problems.

Unlike conventional VC funds, we don’t charge any management or performance fees, as we are investing in parallel with you, sharing the risks and rewards with you. We are also currently ESIC (Early Stage Innovation Company) eligible, so you will get the 20% tax offset and zero capital gains for holding between 1-10 years if you are an eligible ESIC investor.

ElectroLabs is our Venture Studio style business model where we experiment with incubating new sustainable innovations ideas and technologies within Electro Ventures to test the market appetite. This informs us on deciding on further investing and/or spinning out the opportunities to facilitate scale.  The CyberTrailer aerodynamic solar trailer prototype is an example of a project lead and funded by Electro Ventures.
