Otta's take on Bonnet

Sam Franklin

CEO of Otta

There are many different charging point companies out there and each requires a separate app, card, account, etc. It's a difficult and confusing landscape. This is the issue Bonnet wants to tackle - a network of all EV charge points that drivers can access through one application.

The business provides benefits for multiple parties: drivers looking for access to all charging points through a single monthly subscription, businesses thinking of electrifying their fleet, and owners of charging infrastructure wanting to increase the visibility.

With similar apps already on the market, Bonnet hopes to provide one that unifies all the features that drivers need, and has concentrated funds on expanding the platform's chargepoint offering and partnerships with network operators. Fresh funding will be used to accelerate growth off the back of strong traction throughout 2022, with Bonnet now boasting over 200,000 chargers on its network.

Total funding - $10.3m

Diversity & Inclusion at Bonnet

Eltje Lange (VP People)

  • Building a diverse and inclusive team is at the heart of everything we do both in the people team, and the wider Bonnet team. We are aware that diversity & inclusion efforts are ongoing, and that we will never have it all figured out and ‘done’. This means we need to constantly learn and iterate. We will also make mistakes, but the important thing is that we learn from them and act with positive intent.
  • 12 weeks fully paid parental leave, regardless of gender. Additional 14 weeks maternity leave on 50%.
  • We extended our bereavement policy to include pregnancy and child loss for both parents, with no questions asked and 2 weeks of paid leave.
  • Actively track and working to improve gender balance (currently 37% female) and gender pay gap.
  • We built points around Neurodiversity and care responsibilities into our management training.
