Company Summary

Founded by two EV pioneers PlugSurfing solves the needs of the driver by taking away his "Range Anxiety", the fear of running out of battery and not being able to use a charging point because it's prone to exclusive use. This PlugSurfing does by having created the most advanced database for EV charging in Europe with real-time information and offering a billing system. Both drivers and OEM's will benefit from our aggregated services.

    CEO and Co-Founder

    As a former touring musician, PlugSurfing is the outcome of Adam's life experiences: he has seen enough modern cities to spot the integral problems of modern living such as pollution & noise, but also thrived on the creative problem solving of the start-up world. This, along with employment in a large UK energy company, led Adam to co-found PlugSurfing, steer the company through its first investment round & now hurtle towards first revenue.

    COO and Co-Founder

    After mastering the unique ways system theories can make you understand organizational complexity more than you would imagine, Jacob wanted to found his own company to battle the complexities of the world of business. He had only two criteria: it had to be ultra modern and contributing to a cleaner world. No more noisy cars and horrendous car he is, proudly presenting a fast growing network for electro mobility.
