Dragons Den delight for Kerbo Charge

Kerbo Charge, a British start-up that has developed a system for EV owners who only have on-street parking have secured investment from Deborah Meaden after pitching on the BBC TV show Dragons Den.

The company came up with a simple home EV charging solution for those who do not have driveways. The solution is achieved by simply carving a gully in the pavement (with local authority approval) and then fitting plastic housing within large enough so it can accommodate an EV charging cable. The cable holder has a lid so the charging cable can be removed simply by flipping it open. 

This means the pavement will remain flat and avoid any health and safety issues with running a cable on the surfacekerbo charge of the pavement. The solution brings EV charging to 40% of UK drivers who rely on charging from on-street solutions

The company was set up in  2021 by Michael Goulden and Ben Whitaker and this week they found themselves in the Dragon’s Den pitching for investment. Long-time Dragon Deborah Meaden liked the idea and she chose to invest despite a rather cynical response from fellow Dragon Peter Jones.
