Meet the founders

The founding team of Deftpower knows how to get a business from zero to one and how to create structure from chaos. Marc Diks, Jacob van Zonneveld and Remco Tjeerdsma have a long track record in e-mobility and have built household names in e-mobility like Plugsurfing and Allego.



It is clear that we need to manage our energy generation and consumption in a dramatically better way. Besides bicycling as often as possible, vehicles should be powered by renewable energy and, when possible, stabilise the grid. This way we transform from a centralised and polluting energy system, to one which is decentralised and environmentally sound.

The Deftpower founders are contributing to this urgently needed transition by using state-of-the-art software and business practices. They welcome anyone who wants to join the ride.
