SolarMente: the Spanish startup invested by Di Caprio

SolarMente, the Spanish startup financed by Leonardo Di Caprio, offers innovative solar solutions to combat rising energy costs while championing sustainability. With a Netflix-like model, they make clean energy accessible and affordable for all households.

For Spanish households, grappling with the ever-rising electric bill has become a norm. In this context was born SolarMente, a ‘cleantech’ startup based in Barcelona.

With a Netflix-like subscription model, SolarMente offers households a seamless transition to solar power, bundling solar energy, battery storage, home electrification, and energy management into one comprehensive package.

Wouter Draijer, the CEO of the company, attributes their success to an innovative approach and a commitment to simplicity. "Our aim is to make clean energy adoption straightforward for users," Draijer explains. Expanding beyond Catalonia, SolarMente sets its sights on Madrid, Valencia, Alicante, and Mallorca, with plans for nationwide coverage by spring 2024.

The company's growth trajectory is nothing short of impressive, experiencing a 400% surge in 2024 fueled by a €50 million investment from GNE Finance. This influx of capital propels SolarMente towards its goal of installing 10,000 solar systems in homes over the next five years.

Currently averaging 80 installations per month, SolarMente aims to quadruple this figure to 400 installations monthly before summer 2024. With the specter of rising oil prices looming, the quest to reduce electric bills remains pertinent, propelling SolarMente's ascent.

So, what's the secret behind SolarMente's triumph? It boils down to technology and adaptability. "Innovation, comprehensiveness, and robust growth define our success," declares the CEO. Offering both upfront payment and subscription models, SolarMente captures market share amidst soaring energy prices.

As the ‘clean energy’ landscape evolves, SolarMente remains in its mission to provide affordable, sustainable energy solutions. Much like Netflix offers uninterrupted entertainment, SolarMente aims to furnish homeowners with an ecological and reliable source of power.

Dealmate is like if Tinder, Uber, and Techcrunch had a baby

We embrace the startup culture and provide founders with a digital place to learn, stay up to date, and discover providers, colliding both worlds for the first time in a match-making tool :)

Like Tinder because…

We use proprietary software to match startups with a curated selection of studios, agencies, and professionals by summiting a simple form with their needs, budget, and timeframe.

Inspired by Uber infrastructure…

Providing an end-to-end experience by managing the entire process on a single platform, we reduce the stress, hunt, and communication issues often experienced during the briefing, payment, and even feedback stage.

With the Techcrunch approach…

We aim to empower the ecosystem by amplifying stories from founders and providers to become a powerhouse of content leveraging the massive reach of online media into attention for our partners.

Who is behind dealmate?

Dealmate was born out of the frustration of Iñigo as a startup founder, Adrian burned out as a creative studio owner, and the experience of Sharon being a programmer and designer. Our journey as founders inspired us to create the platform we all dreamed about, facilitating the deal flow experience between startups and providers.
