January 18, 2024: Tech investment expert Laura Webster has joined the board of London-based battery software developer About:Energy, the company announced on January 10.

Webster, a partner at investment firm Coltrane Asset Management, has a successful track record in navigating technology market volatility, About:Energy said.

She also specializes in angel investing and made what About:Energy said was a notable investment in its June 2023 seed round, valued at £1.5 million.

“This investment underscores her forward-thinking approach and her ability to identify and support promising ventures in the energy sector,” the firm said.

Founded in 2021, About:Energy is a spinout from Imperial College London and the University of Birmingham.

 The company’s software platform, ‘The Voltt’, can be used by customers developing their own battery  programmes to cut development costs and use the modelling software to reduce time to market for their own products.
