According to Agustin Guilisasti, CEO and Founder of Forest: “The extension of the Series A to £17 million is a testament to Forest’s resilient business model and our growth trajectory.

We are proud to be growing our service with further support from Triodos Bank UK and two new partners.”

Amandine Tetot, Head of Project Finance at Triodos Bank UK, said: “Since our initial finance arrangement earlier this year, it’s impressive to see Forest go from strength to strength as it rolls out its fleet to more London boroughs. It’s just the kind of forward-thinking company we want to partner with, as we all work towards net-zero solutions for cities. We are proud that Forest took the opportunity to roll out new e-bikes to drive awareness of UK waterways and generate funds to support The Rivers Trust.”
