The Shift 100 has been put together to identify retail technology entrepreneurs who are bringing new ideas and products to market, creating integrated customer experiences and leading the move away from traditional ‘clicks and mortar’ e-commerce.
These entrepreneurs have been selected because they are dynamic, agile and shifting gears. They have brought an innovative product to market, cleverly harnessed a technology or process, led the revolutionary execution of a new technology and disrupted their markets.
Stephen Voller, Tim Walder, Dr Jonathan Tuck and Dr Marappa Rajendran have been recognised within retail technology Shift 100 in association with KPMG Small Business Accounting.
The idea behind ZapGo was from frequent business traveller Stephen Voller how was dependent on his mobile phone but found if frustrating sitting on airport floors waiting to charge his phone. This fuelled the development of ZapGo.
The aim for ZapGo is for its supercapacitor to replace the lithium-ion battery inside mobile phones. ZapGo is a graphene supercapacitor-based charger that claims to be able to recharge mobile phones, laptops, cordless appliances and even electric vehicles in five minutes or less.
USP: Able to charge anything from a mobile phone to an electric car in five minutes or less.
