EMO Energy, a battery-tech start-up, has raised Rs 10 Crore ($1.2 Million) in a seed round led by Transition VC, and co-led by Gruhas.
Founded in February 2022 by Sheetanshu Tyagi and Rahul Patel, EMO is a deep-tech energy start-up that aims to decarbonize the developing world by implementing battery-powered solutions in high-power and high-energy applications.
The brand offers battery packs for light EVs, which are powered by ZEN, a proprietary cell-agnostic tech platform that allows 100 per cent fire safety, twenty-minute fast charging, and 120 per cent improvement in battery life.
Prior to starting EMO, Sheetanshu, and Rahul were integral to the battery pack teams at Ola Electric, Sun Mobility, Rivian, Alta Motors, Ather, and General Motors. They were responsible for implementing the hardware and software technology besides manufacturing processes to build the battery pack from scratch.
