Building on the €8 million in funding already raised, including funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation program and venture capital, the purpose of this additional funding round is to allow the public and our community to invest directly in one of Europe’s most innovative climate tech startups.  

The company will use the funds to advance commercialisation and scale-up. Daphne Technology’s supporters will be able to invest from as little as €10 to own part of the business. 

Daphne Technology is working with the world’s first and largest equity crowdfunding platform, Crowdcube. Crowdcube boasts a remarkable track record for successful crowdfunding for some of the most successful startups, such as Monzo, Pod Point, and Revolut. 

Daphne Technology has designed and patented innovative technology for the maritime industry, reducing air and sea pollution for ships. 

Inge C. Paulsen, Chairman at Daphne Technology, said: “Technological innovation is needed to achieve zero emissions from international shipping. Our ambition is to place the maritime sector on a pathway to achieve this goal. We have a technology-first approach, and our innovation delivers an economically viable route to eliminate toxic and GHG emissions.”
