“When the energy is right, you’re often left with a well lit life”; this statement strikes true with todays WCW.
Meet our WCW: Founder and CEO of Uncharted Play • Jessica O. Matthews – A successful black American of Nigerian Descent, Harvard Law graduate and Inventor.
Uncharted Play is an innovative tech company that makes kinetic energy-harnessing products in order to “democratize (equality) energy access worldwide.”
The company’s first product was an energy-harnessing soccer ball called the Soccket, a ball that could power a lamp after a few hours of play; bringing a whole new emphasis to “This little light of mine, i’m gonna let it shine”.
The idea stemmed from Miss Matthews refusal to accept the unstable socially accepted standard of living, leading to her inventing a solution, and what a rewarding goal this became.
Miss Matthews raised $7M (the largest series A amount raised by a woman of colour.)
To put this into perspective, the CEO states that she is excited to be playing on an equal level as the people whom look the opposite of her in Silicon Valley.
