Ukrainian company Ecoisme has joined EIT InnoEnergy’s portfolio
Ecoisme is a smart energy monitoring sensor which allows homeowners save up to 15% on their electricity bills. It provides the full picture of user’s home energy usage and their home appliances activity. Using gamification and tips Ecoisme keeps homeowners motivated and engaged to save money and energy.
Ecoisme has received support from EIT InnoEnergy Boostway acceleration programme. As a result, the company will have access to EIT InnoEnergy’s community of experts and partners. CEO of Ecoisme Ivan Pasichnyk said the following: 'We are very thankful for this support and opportunity. We were glad to see the EIT InnoEnergy’s interest not just in Ecoisme, but also in Ukrainian companies. We believe this is a beginning of communication between EIT InnoEnergy and Ukrainian companies'.
To introduce EIT InnoEnergy’s representatives to the Ukrainian Community, Ecoisme organised an event, called “Financial instruments for start-ups: investments, grants, loans” that took place in Kiev on 21 February. Among EIT InnoEnergy and Ecoisme there were also speakers from Borsch Ventures, Greencubator, Ukrainian National Startup Fund and iHub.
'EIT InnoEnergy has invested in the Ecoisme project which changes the household owners’ knowledge about energy usage and allows them to save money. It’s not only an investment in the product, but also in the passionate and conscious team', said Łukasz Świercz, Business Creation Officer at InnoEnergy Central Europe.
