RumiTech Secures EUR 230 000 Pre-Seed Investment after EIT Jumpstarter Success

In a significant stride towards sustainable energy solutions, Turkish start-up RumiTech clinched second place in the InnoEnergy category at the EIT Jumpstarter Grand Final in 2023. 

Their innovative approach to smart energy solutions, combining solar and wind power, garnered attention and earned them a pre-seed investment of EUR 230 000 from Sabancı ARF, Sabancı Holding’s corporate accelerator programme. This company is one of the biggest conglomerates in Türkye.

The funders of RumiTech created their company during the EIT Jumpstarter, contributing to the programme’s biggest goal. The competitive platform not only provided them with a valuable opportunity to get essential business skills and create their business plan but also allowed them to showcase their solutions.

RumiTech specialises in developing smart energy solutions that efficiently store renewable energy from the sun and wind. Their groundbreaking technology goes beyond conventional applications, providing power to various IoT devices such as integrated lighting, cameras, security systems, and wireless internet, ensuring off-grid functionality at all times. The company’s hybrid system uniquely harnesses both solar and wind energy, offering a sustainable and reliable power source.

The Plug&Play IoT platform developed by RumiTech enables remote monitoring and management of integrated systems. This comprehensive solution not only addresses the energy needs of businesses but also paves the way for residential applications. While their initial focus has been on business-to-business (B2B) products, RumiTech is actively engaged in ongoing research and development for a consumer-oriented (B2C) line.

We will use the investment we receive for R&D and production. We will also grow by adding new members to our team. Though sales operations have not commenced, we’ve received more than 40 Proof of Concept (PoC) requests and pre-orders for over 20 products. Our priority is completing PoC studies with target customers and initiating mass production.

RumiTech’s success at the EIT Jumpstarter Grand Final and the subsequent significant pre-seed investment highlights the industry’s recognition of their potential to revolutionise the renewable energy sector. With a commitment to innovation and sustainability, EIT Jumpstarter and RumiTech are poised to make lasting contributions to the global shift towards cleaner and more efficient energy solutions.

Following the evaluation of our enterprise at this early stage, we aim to expand our production facility by embarking on a Seed investment tour within one year. This expansion will allow us to enhance production capacity.
