Techstars is a global network of startup accelerators that foster entrepreneurship and innovation to the ever-growing tech community. They have locations in several cities across the country and Boston is one of the more prominent hosts of the Techstars program.
On April 26, Northeastern University hosted the ten companies that are partaking in Techstars Boston to showcase what their businesses are all about. Before the pitches, Techstars Boston Co-Directors Clement Cazalot and Aaron O’Hearn took the stage to welcome everyone and urged any and all audience members to participate in an online discussion about Demo Day.
SparkCharge was the first company to kick-off the event. SparkCharge makes Portable Modular Ultra Fast Charging Stations for electric vehicles that go in your trunk. For the first time EV owners will be able to charge their car anytime and anywhere they want. Now, EV owners can seamlessly connect and extend range by swapping out addition 10 mile range battery packs as they see fit. Their rapid chargers can charge electric vehicles at 1 mile every 60 seconds, which makes charging fast and convenient.
