Lawrence Leuschner

Founder & Serial Entrepreneur

As an impact entrepreneur, I am committed to fighting climate change by building businesses with a sustainable vision. I am convinced that every sector must take actions today to protect our planet. Since I can remember, I have felt uncomfortable with how wasteful we as societies treat our resources. So I have dedicated my personal and professional life towards sustainability on all fronts.

That early passion first meant taking the trashed returns of my Dad’s warehouse and selling them on the flea market at the age of 9. Then as a teenager I started my first ‘real’ business in high school with trade-a-game, a second-hand platform for video games which evolved into rebuy.com, the leading circular economy platform for repaired and refurbished media and electronics, which went on to extend the life of 100 million products. After 15 years dedicating my life to the circular economy I took a break to travel the world. At the time of my exit, the company had surpassed €100m revenue and turned profitable.

My 18-month journey around the world showed me how much we need to act on global warming. Seeing natural devastation up close sharpened my mind to focus even more on climate change. Then a UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPPC) report helped me better understand the key drivers of that change, with transport and mobility at the heart of global warming. With how people get around their cities central to that problem, the idea of TIER was born.

Now Europe’s leading player in its field, my amazing team of 1,600 is on a shared mission to change mobility for good. That means not just offering greener ways to get from A to B but also setting a high bar for others to follow - from pioneering sustainable swappable batteries to being the first in the sector to go fully climate-neutral. Across 130+ cities and a range of shared electric modes - scooters, bikes and mopeds are just the start - we are shifting people out of cars and onto safe, sustainable transport. We’ve made game-changing progress so far, yet are at the early stages of a hugely exciting journey for TIER.

Alongside my mission at TIER, there is Blue Impact Ventures, a fund I founded in 2018 to back leading players in the green tech impact space. Based on years of scientific research, we identified sectors that we believe will spark the turnaround in the CO2 race - from clean mobility and regenerative farming to solar housing and food waste reduction. I have even pledged my entire stake in TIER to the climate mission through Blue Impact, with all profits re-circulated in the fund.
