Recently, one of our current G.A.P. businesses was featured in a BostInno article, which called warranted to this innovative idea paired with a great cause! ChargePal, led by CEO Rashik Hyder, is a portable PowerCard the size of a credit card capable of charging any modern smartphone, whether Apple, Android or Windows. The emergency power source can charge up to a third of a phone’s battery, and also doubles as a data-sync cable, meaning users can directly transfer their music, photos and video to their laptop. The article goes on to explain that Hyder feels they have really raised the bar for FME businesses in the future, so successful in fact that they are currently sold out! Better yet, all proceeds from ChargePal will benefit the Greater Boston Food Bank. Check out what the hype is all about!
