Zeaborn backs technology investor

Zeaborn Group has joined Bitstone Capital and Inno Real to invest in TecPier, a new maritime technology investor.

TecPier, according to Zeaborn, will primarily invest in start-ups that are in the pre-seed and seed phases, adding that the company places a clear focus on business models that have the potential to substantially change the shipping industry.

In addition to receiving investments, the selected start-up companies will be supported with operational resources and the ability to network with established industrial partners via TecPier. Additionally, TecPier will support established companies as an external innovation partner for digital transformation processes.

Jan-Hendrik Többe, managing partner of the Zeaborn Group, explained: “We firmly believe that over the next few years a number of digital businesses will emerge, that will completely transform the industry as we know it today. Together with our partners - BitStone Capital and Inno Real, we are looking forward to investing in the best entrepreneurs, who will launch these business models and to enable them with our expertise.”

TecPier founding partner Johannes Winkler added: “We have already identified more than 150 maritime start-ups and interviewed various founders. We see great potential for the shipping industry, especially in the fields of energy efficiency, online marketplaces and digital process optimisation in the coming years.”
