Summary

We are launching a ClimateTech venture that will drive forward the EV transition and enable dealerships to sell EVs faster, retain customers, and acquire more used vehicles through battery-centric tools. We are looking for an entrepreneurial and highly experienced individual to act as Founder and Chief Technology Officer to build, lead and scale this venture.

Please note: This is not an employee opportunity at Diagram Ventures, but an opportunity in a new company created through our venture studio model. This company will be independent of Diagram Ventures.

The opportunity

As we move along the adoption curve of EVs, we are passing the chasm of early adopters and moving into the mainstream market. In 2024, nearly 2 million people will be walking onto a dealer lot considering an EV. Unlike early adopters, this group has different interest levels, knowledge levels, and buying preferences and will rely on dealers for help in deciding if an EV is right for them.

Dealerships are now at the forefront of the EV transition, as they will be responsible for driving the next phase of growth. We have defined a vision for a company that will help dealers across the lifecycle of an EV with battery-centric tools, providing the intelligence they need to move this inventory quickly & profitably,

This venture has been significantly de-risked, with product-market fit verified and a solid commercial pipeline. Diagram provides capital, network, and support services, giving you the leverage you need to quickly scale this business.
