Global Brain has invested in PIONIX GmbH, an open-source software company for EV charging
Global Brain has invested in PIONIX GmbH (PIONIX), an open-source software company for electric vehicle (EV) charging, through its GB-VIII Growth Fund Investment Limited Partnership (GB-VIII).
PIONIX develops an operating system for EV chargers and is the leading open-source pioneer for EV charging technology. In 2021, PIONIX initiated “EVerest,” the first freely accessible and holistic software solution for the booming market of e-mobility.
The open-source software stack “EVerest” is the perfect solution to develop, optimize, and unify EV charging infrastructure. It is PIONIX’s answer to the incompatibility between different charging systems. It also addresses the growing need for user-tailored solutions in an era where government declarations targeting Zero Emissions by 2050, adopted by various nations including the G7, lead the way for policy-making in the field of EVs and charging infrastructure. The company fully supports its business customers by customizing “EVerest” to their exact needs. Its customers include charging station manufacturers, component developers, and energy utilities in Europe, North America, and Asia.
Global Brain’s decision to invest in PIONIX was driven by the rapid growth of the EV market, especially in the Asian market and the region's strong commitment to sustainability and reduced carbon emissions. PIONIX's open-source framework, designed for versatility across diverse EV charging standards, positions the company as a catalyst for innovation and industry leadership. Recognizing PIONIX's potential to drive the global EV agenda, Global Brain eagerly embarks on this partnership, fueling anticipation for the journey ahead. Through this investment, Global Brain will help the company to further its business into other markets, leveraging its domestic and international resources.
