Funding

Ampyx Power is an independent company. In the past 8 years, we’ve managed to raise more than €24-million through Depository Receipt offerings, Dutch and European innovation grants and with ‘in kind’ contributions.

'Ampyx Power is a promise to disrupt the wind energy market and to make sustainable energy more competitive.'

Richard KooloosInformal Investor and STAK chairman

Without informal investments, Ampyx Power would not have been able to build its pre-eminent position in the emerging Airborne Wind Energy sector. From 2018 however, we will no longer offer informal investors the opportunity to invest in our company. From the end of 2017, we will only focus on strategic and formal investors supplemented by grants and subsidies.

Investor Network

During what remains of 2017, informal investors that would like to invest more than €200.000 will be offered an attractive investment proposition. Through the Investor Network Ampyx Power (“INAP”), angel investors (“Angels”) will be represented by an elected INAP chairman at the shareholders table. This means more influence on the business management of Ampyx Power. The investors in INAP will also receive detailed information on the progress of the company.

“INAP offers Angels attractive conditions as they will have their say at the shareholders table on behalf of a group of similar investors. This construction also has specific tax benefits and exemptions.”

Crowdfunding

Our most recent crowdfunding campaign was a novelty in The Netherlands: investors could buy their certificates directly online through our own website. The result exceeded our expectations. Apart from the fact that we raised € 406.165,50, 300 new crowd-funders from more than 19 countries became co-owners of our company.

 

Innovation grants:
Kansen voor West I & II, TKI wind op zee, Horizon 2020, Marie Curie
