Invest in Lightyear

Reaching our mission requires financing – and a lot of it. Let us not pretend that we will have all the required funds ready from day one. That would not be smart. Financing is a delicate process where success is rewarded with the funds to continue to grow towards the next successes.


The world is in need of sustainable mobility, and fast. This is where we come in: we provide the clear next step in mobility. At Lightyear, everyone is committed to the mission and our investors value that.

Since our incorporation at the end of 2016, Lightyear has raised €2,4M in convertible loans. On the 18th of April 2018 Lightyear raised an additional €2,5M in equity in the Series A investment round, converting all debt to equity.

After the Series A Lightyear has continously raised additional funding through new convertible loans, in parallel to the preparations of the Series B investment round. At the start of 2019, Lightyear has been granted a €2.5M subsidy through the European Commission – Horizon2020 programme. The subsidy approval was based on an exceptionally high assessment score of 14.44 / 15.00.

Our loyal investors have allowed us to come this far and we are excited for what the future brings by using funds entrusted to us to build our company and develop the Lightyear One.
