John Rossant joins general partnership of renu ventures

renu ventures, an early-stage, Los Angeles-based venture fund focused on the rapid transformation of the energy and transportation sectors, is pleased to announce the addition of John Rossant to the general partnership.

John Rossant is the CEO of CoMotion, the leading events and media platform in new mobility behind the CoMotion LA and CoMotion MIAMI mobility conferences and is the Founder and Chairman of the NewCities Foundation.

renu ventures invests into early-stage technologies and business models that support, or are enabled by, the broader global energy and mobility transition across four complementary sectors: smart grid and grid edge, urban mobility, electric transportation, and integration technologies.

“John has an extraordinary network across the global landscape of new energy and mobility and we are delighted to have him onboard,’ said Boris von Bormann, renu’s Founder and former CEO of Mercedes-Benz Energy and former CEO of the Americas at Sonnen, Inc., an energy storage company acquired by Shell in 2019.
