Marvel Fusion was founded in 2019 by Moritz von der Linden, Dr. Karl-Georg Schlesinger, Dr. Georg Korn, and Dr. Pasha Shabalin. Chief Operating Officer Heike Freund joined in 2020. The company, pre-seeded by BlueYard Capital, pursues a new and fast-track route to the commercial application of fusion energy.
The company has gathered a unique team behind their mission to solve one of the biggest challenges of mankind: the creation of unlimited zero-emission energy. Scientists from the Ludwig-Maximilians-University in Munich, the Extreme Light Infrastructure for Nuclear Physics (ELI-NP), Stanford University and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) have recently joined forces with Marvel Fusion to bring its fusion concept to fruition.
To further advance its technology development, Marvel Fusion raised EUR 35 million in its Series A, led by Earlybird with significant contributions from ATHOS Venture GmbH, PRIMEPULSE, Tobi Lütke and Fiona MKean’s Thistledown Capital, Taavet Hinrikus & Sten Tamviki (OÜ Notorius), Nicolas Berggruen Charitable Trust and Heinz Dürr Invest GmbH among others. Existing investors Hartmut Neven, Albert Wenger, and Chris Hitchen’s Possible Ventures also participated in the round. To date, the company has raised EUR 60 million in total funds.
