EVE was co-founded in 2020 by Sarah-Marie Rust and Oana Rosca after they met during their studies at Trinity College Dublin. The ongoing climate crisis and the efforts to revert its effects inspired the two co-founders to start EVE in an effort to support the transition to electric, sustainable mobility.
Oana grew up in Bucharest, a city polluted by emissions from cars, as public transport is underdeveloped. Sarah first-hand experienced the effects of climate change in her region in southern Germany with increased heavy rain, flooding, and mudslides. Both founders knew that they needed to support the efforts to combat climate change and ensure CO2 emissions will be reduced.
