Operating as a fully integrated end-to-end company, VanMoof takes complete ownership of everything from design to production, from sales to after-service – all geared to get the next billion on bikes worldwide. A major figure in the current wave of e-bike adoption, VanMoof is on course to redefine city mobility forever.

VanMoof, the category-defining Dutch e-bike brand, announced a $40 million investment in September from Norwest Venture Partners, Felix Capital and Balderton Capital. The Series B financing comes just months after a $13.5 million investment in May and bolsters VanMoof for further global expansion, giving the company a stronger e-bike market share in North America, Europe and Japan. Leading the current wave of e-bike adoption, VanMoof is the fastest-growing e-bike brand worldwide and is on course to redefine city mobility forever. The funding brings VanMoof’s total raised to $73 million and furthers the e-bike brand’s ultimate mission of getting the next billion on bikes.
