“They’ve been with us the entire journey”.

Erik Fairbairn CEO & Founder, Pod Point

  • Armed with a vision that travel shouldn’t damage the earth, Pod Point is the UK’s leading provider of electric vehicle charging
  • Founded in 2009, Barclays has banked Pod Point since inception and watched the company rapidly achieve phenomenal growth
  • Pre-empting the milestones that a fast growth company like Pod Point would encounter, Barclays has provided relevant products at each stage of the journey 
  • Our venture debt offering - enabled by our innovation finance product which is partly guaranteed by the European Investment Fund1 - has supported Pod Point to gain early access to capital so they can focus on developing their business 
  • By getting under the bonnet of Pod Point, we’ve helped provide the energy to power their continued growth 
  • Barclays are keen to support businesses looking to benefit the environment. For more information, please see our Green Loan product offering
