Aptera Co-CEOs to Receive First-Ever Super Crowd Impact Crowdfunder of the Year Award
The Super Crowd, Inc. Will Present the Award at SuperCrowd23 on May 10
This week, we’re sharing an announcement Devin made in his newsletter because it is so aligned with our passions. To those who subscribe to both, we apologize for the redundancy.
We’re not financial advisors; nothing we write in Our Solar Electric Trailer Journey should be considered investment advice. You should seek appropriate counsel before making investment decisions. We own shares in Aptera and have an early reservation for one of the sEVs.
The Super Crowd, Inc., a public benefit corporation, will present Aptera Co-CEOs, Steve Fambro and Chris Anthony with the first-ever Super Crowd Impact Crowdfunder of the Year Award in recognition of the money raised via their Regulation A crowdfunding offering.
Under the leadership of the Co-CEOs, Aptera has raised over $60 million via crowdfunding offerings over the past several years to bring to market a solar electric vehicle that will be the most energy efficient in history. The award will be presented on day one of SuperCrowd23, a virtual conference to be held on May 10 and 11. Tickets are still available.
“We are honored to receive the first-ever Super Crowd Impact Crowdfunder of the Year Award,” said Fambro. “Our community recognizes the social and environmental impact of producing an affordable electric vehicle that can operate over 10,000 miles per year directly from the sun and without charging from the grid.”
“We are grateful to be recognized with this award, but we remain focused on a single mission to get our solar electric vehicle into production,” Anthony said. “To bring solar mobility to the mass market, we are securing additional funding through our crowdfunding campaign, institutional investments, and nondilutive government loan and grant programs. We’ll rest when we’ve delivered our sEVs to the 42,000+ people who have reserved one.”
“The potential environmental impact of vehicles that use a fraction of the energy of the most efficient EVs on the road today cannot be overstated,” says The Super Crowd, Inc., CEO Devin Thorpe. “Given the vital role that crowdfunding has played in building Aptera, there is no more deserving recipient for our first-ever Super Crowd Impact Crowdfunder of the Year Award.”
Based in San Diego, California, Aptera received a $21 million grant from the California Energy Commission in March to help it bring its sEVs into production there.
