E-bus telematics services provider Saga Tenix announces it has secured 10 million NOK (around 855,000 euros) in funding from Newday to further hone their technology for electric buses.
Saga Tenix is a provider of electric bus telematics services (it has for instance delivered the IT solutions to Keolis EV fleet in Bergen), and in May 2021 has raised €1.5 million from Norway’s largest VC fund, Idekapital. Now Rune Holen, Partner at Idekapital, enters the board as Chairman of the board. Trond Stensrud, CEO and partner of Newday will also be joining Tenix as a board member. In late 2021 Saga Tenix had been awarded a 1 million euros grant from the Research Council of Norway.
