Fastned offers shareholders lifetime free charging
Amsterdam, 19 mei 2015. Starting today, the Dutch company Fastned offers their shareholders the unique benefit of free fast-charging at all Fastned stations for the rest of their life. For this purpose the fast growing company today launched the Fastned Founders Club. Investors that purchase more than 2500 certificates of shares of Fastned of 10 euro apiece automatically become a member of this club and can immediately start charging for free. Joining the Founders Club is a unique and once in a lifetime opportunity for everyone who thinks about driving an electric car and sees opportunities in investing in the service stations of the future.
Fastned already has 31 stations operational, and is adding one new station every week. Co-founder and CEO Michiel Langezaal: “Our goal is similar to mobile telephony - to create a national network of fast charging stations with national coverage, which allows electric cars to go anywhere with peace of mind. Anyone who invests a substantial amount today becomes co-owner of the infrastructure of the future and can use it for free, forever.” Apart from being a shareholder and the privilege of free lifetime charging, members of the Fastned Founders Club are invited to the annual Founders Dinner. Here they can meet other like minded investors and pioneers. The Fastned Founders Club will only be open for a limited time, and for a finite number of investors. At launch the club already has 17 members. Investing is possible via the Fastned website: www.fastned.nl/en/invest. Free charging will automatically be enabled for shareholders who own more than 2500 certificates.
