Niels Bartels, CEO - Energie in Huis
Eneco Ventures invested in Energie in Huis and introduced us to other parts of Eneco. We closely collaborate with the consumer organisation which provides for extra customers and knowhow on ‘state of the art’ marketing. Together with Eneco data scientists we jointly work on new product development by combining data insights. Eneco HSSEQ enabled us to accelerate the further professionalisation of the quality and safety control system. Maintaining independence is a recurring point of attention with so much synergies, but the choice for a corporate VC turns out to be an excellent fit with Energie in Huis.
