In 2008, I bootstrapped InCharged phone charging kiosk from my father's basement with zero funding and have retained 100% ownership without debt or outside investors. We have become a dominant force, generating $25M+ in revenue.
Between Covid and acquisitions, InCharged has remained open for business and has expanded its product offerings to wifi, metal detectors, and event staffing. In 2023 InCharged won a national account for all new amazon stores providing sampling tech.
InCharged today is led by its core team, as Jessica has taken on a chairman position in the company.
Amidst the pandemic's overwhelming challenges, our indomitable spirit and expertise in product development led to the birth of Lux Disinfect, a trailblazing disinfection tech company focusing on UVC light technology. Determined to help the world reopen safely with scarce disinfectants, our very own Jessica crafted the first UVC towers from limited Home Depot supplies and the final 100 UVC bulbs in the US. These innovations allowed schools, daycares, and frontline workers to stay operational, reusing masks and PPE, while sustaining the fight against the ruthless pandemic.
Introducing Lux Disinfect, an innovative brand revolutionizing the world of disinfection technology with its cutting-edge UVC air purification systems and robotic kiosks. Engineered to ensure the well-being and safety of people in homes, schools, and workplaces, Lux Disinfect caught the eye of New Jersey's Governor, earning its creator Jessica a prestigious position on the Restart and Recover Commission. Collaborating with noteworthy personalities like Ben Bernanke and the CEO of Campbell's Soup, her efforts strengthened state-wide initiatives for safer reopening. Gaining widespread recognition between 2020-2022, Jessica received multiple awards and media accolades, culminating in a triumphant exit in 2021.
