Energous Corporation is developing WattUp™, a wire-free charging technology that will transform the way people charge and power their electronic devices at home, in the office, in the car and beyond. WattUp is a revolutionary, patent- and trademark-pending solution that delivers intelligent, scalable power via the same radio bands as a Wi-Fi router. WattUp differs from current wireless charging systems in that it delivers meaningful, useable power, at a distance, while allowing users to roam while charging. The result is a wire-free experience that saves users from having to remember to plug in their devices or place them on a mat. Energous will initially license WattUp to the wearable and mobile-accessory markets and will expand to other markets such as Wi-Fi routers and smartphones over time. Energous Corporation began trading on the NASDAQ in March, 2014 under the symbol WATT.
Cesar’s strong qualifications in mobile connectivity were a natural fit for Energous. I am excited to have Cesar join our highly experienced management team as we continue to focus on executing our strategic plan to finally deliver on the promise of a true wire-free charging solution.Steve Rizzone, CEO, Energous
