Woman Entrepreneur Charged up to Change the Economy of Detroit with Charge Bot
Detroiter Kieara Johnson took her Startup Wireless Charging Business to Award Winning, Woman Certified Enterprise in Less Than A Year and now Launching IFundWomen Campaign to Serve More People
Johnson who is an active in the community and a very busy mom - got tired of her phone dying at inconvenient times. Her family teased her consistently about how terrible she was at keeping her phone charged. So, along with her husband, they came up with an idea for a solution in 2016: Charge Bot, where she proudly serves as CEO.
"This was the perfect idea for us because we saw the need immediately and we wanted to be the first African American family-owned business in the industry - to become role models for others. This industry is in a hyper growth stage." said Johnson. The wireless/smartphone charging market is slated to be valued at more than 25 billion by 2023; according to a new research report by Global Market Insights, Inc. That is a 40% increase from 2019. Charge Bot is an on-the-go cell phone charging solution firm.
"We provide convenient pre-charged cordless cell phone chargers that are stored in high-tech modern vending machines in public places. What makes Charge Bot so unique is we provide a convenient way you simply swipe your credit card, retrieve your pre-charged cordless charger, plug it in the phone and you're good to go. We wanted to make sure people never miss an important call, text, or email again - and have enough charge on their phone to take photos if they're at their event where they want to record precious memories." said Johnson.
The benefits of Charge Bot:
• No more long cords
• No more waiting at an outlet to charge up
• No more downtime at a charging station
• No more asking random people for a charger
Though the company is doing well, Johnson needs to raise more capital to expand. She has enlisted in a crowdfunding campaign for Charge Bot with iFundWomen.com. The goal is $30,000 which be used for high tech advertising vending machines that will be placed in airports, malls, universities, casinos, arenas and more.
"With a stretch goal of $100,000 Charge Bot could add more vending machines to the market which will allow the company to hire hundreds of people from our community in Detroit - which is one of our biggest missions."
Charge Bot has earned widespread recognition and awards, including MichBusiness "Sustainability"
"We want our business to have success and sustainability because we are going to create transitional housing for single mothers or fathers who have fallen on bad financial times. These homes will be fully furnished and provide all necessities. While in this program, they will be required to take financial literacy courses to make sure they never end up in this situation again," said Johnson
