– Former Formula 1 world champion Nico Rosberg joins TIER Mobility as investor, demonstrating his faith in the company and the future of e-mobility
Berlin, 21 May 2019 – Following its rapid expansion course over the last months, launching in 20 cities across 10 countries, TIER Mobility announced today that Nico Rosberg is joining its community of investors.
Nico Rosberg’s decision to invest in TIER Mobility underscores his faith in the company and his strong belief in e-mobility, as shown in his investment in the FIA Formula E last year.
To date, TIER Mobility has raised €32.4 million on its mission to change mobility for good.
Lawrence Leuschner, CEO and Co-Founder of TIER Mobility: „We are super excited to have Nico on board. Nico is one of the most popular faces of the growing global e-mobility movement and it gives the company a major push that Nico supports us in our mission to change mobility for good.“
Nico Rosberg: “E-mobility will become an important part of the ongoing change in transport. I’m impressed by TIER’s sustainable vision and innovative power. I strongly believe that the company will be one of the winning players in the e-mobility industry.”
Only last month, TIER Mobility announced that it had reached 1 million rides, faster than any e-scooter company before.
TIER Mobility is an e-scooter sharing provider on its mission to change mobility for good.
