SunRoof, a Swedish-Polish start-up developing fully solar 2-in-1 roofs and facades as well as solutions to support smart energy management, raised €2 million in a late seed round for product development and global expansion.
I couldn’t imagine a better moment for launching a new phase of SunRoof. I am convinced that renewable energies will soon become a standard around the world. We will use the funding from this round to develop solar technology and a digital platform for monitoring and efficiently managing our customer’s electricity needs. We are currently creating a unique energy marketplace based on the Redlogger that we acquired over a month ago. We are also strengthening our position in Sweden, Poland, and Norway, and are introducing SunRoof to a number of European markets. Our ambition is to become a European counterpart of Tesla
- said Lech Kaniuk, SunRoof CEO.
SunRoof is growing rapidly
Unprecedented fundraising in the middle of COVID-19 Lockdown
The moment I learned that Lech Kaniuk is working on a new project I took my phone and called him right away. The guys couldn't believe how fast our investment process has been. SunRoof is a special project, created by three legendary founders with a big vision to bring solar energy to millions of households worldwide. I believe that in a few years the company will become one of the most recognized brands from Central and Eastern Europe and I’m very proud to be the first supporter on the VC side
- said Borys Musielak, Founding Partner at SMOK Ventures.
SunRoof manufactures 2-in-1 solar roofs and innovative façades that generate electricity without having to install traditional photovoltaic modules. This is the best replacement for a regular roof, offering the highest efficiency, the lowest carbon footprint, and a unique aesthetic.
Our mission is to speed up the global transition to renewables by developing beautiful roofs that, by generating electricity, will cover the energy demand of the entire building.
