Ten years ago, I sold everything I owned and moved back home to start InCharged, an event technology company building brandable cell phone charging kiosks for large-scale events and Fortune 500 clients. I had no investors or external funding - I bootstrapped this business, had multiple jobs concurrently to make it work, and eventually generated over $6M in revenue. Operating without debt or shareholders means we are able to focus on innovative product development and exceptional client services.
When the COVID-19 pandemic shut down the events industry, I channeled my knowledge of technology development and business operations to build a new product that would not only keep my business afloat, but help others to reopen too. LuxDisinfect brings hospital-grade UVC disinfection technology to businesses of all sizes with disinfection kiosks, boxes, robots, phone charging stations, and air purifiers. Within its first year, LuxUVC generated over $4M in sales and employed 20+ more New Jerseyans to grow the company.
Six years after founding InCharged I used the profits from InCharged to grow VendX, an experiential vending machine that gives users a prize on the spot for completing valuable actions - for example, filling out a survey, playing a game, or posting on social media. VendX generated $750K in sales within the first year, and since things were moving and shaking we decided to seek external funding to help build the company. On our first pitch, we got picked up by Newark Venture Partners.
