A U.K. startup ChargedUp, which offers a mobile charging network has raised £1.2 million (approximately €1.37 million) seed investment. The funding round is led by Sir John Hegarty’s fund The Garage along with JamJar, the former founders of Innocent Smoothie. It is stated that this funding will be used to grow their portfolio across the U.K. and also to fuel its international expansion.
ChargedUp was founded in 2017 by Hugo Tilmouth, Charlie Baron, Hakeem Buge and Forrest Skerman Stevenson. It was founded to resolve the dead mobile phone battery issue with its charging network. Instead of fixed charging points, the founders at ChargedUp have developed a solution to rent a mobile charging pack. It is possible to rent the same from one location and return it at another location.
