Easee founder Jonas Helmikstøl has resigned – and started a new company

Easee founder Jonas Helmextol has written that he is leaving the company he started, taking former software director Ola Stengel with him to start a new company. Distinctive name.

– Fyrstikk is a company that will start new companies. Helmixtol, the company's creator, says the focus will be on building sustainable and scalable companies in the energy sector.

– It could be about charging electric cars, solar cells, batteries and smart homes. It will be a continuation of the ecosystem idea as we started building it at Easee. But we won't do anything that constitutes direct competition with Easee, he continues, noting that they have non-compete clauses as part of the shareholder agreement.

Selling somewhat down

Helmikstøl aims to finance the first phase of the development himself, and reveals his desire to sell part of Easee, of which he still owns approximately 25 percent.

At the same time as Helmikstøl and Stengel were withdrawing, according to DN, the duo signed a cooperation agreement with Easee to support product development for a period of time.

– I'm feeling comfortable. It's time for me to quit. I'm sure the company will do well without me, says Helmixtol.

Failed to repair

It has been more than a year since the Swedish Electricity Authority stopped the sale of Easee Home and Charge products. The sales ban turned everything upside down, the company had to be refinanced and mass layoffs were carried out. Helmixtol himself had to step down as CEO.

Easee also took the sales ban to court, but chose earlier this month to withdraw the case.

At the same time as the sales ban, the Swedish Electricity Authority put forward demands for measures to be taken regarding chargers that Easee had already installed in Sweden. But just over a week ago, it became clear that the company would not have to repair these chargers — as well as those installed in Norway, DN wrote on Tuesday.

Furthermore, the company obtained new documents accepted by the authorities in Switzerland.
