SPOR empowers people through energy. We design and manufacture products that use clean energy to power the world’s mobile devices. Crowdfunded by over 1,400 backers pledging over $112,000, supported by over $200,000 in angel investment, and run by four change-hungry millennials, SPOR seeks to spread power from West Philly to West Africa. We currently sell palm-sized injection molded and 3D printed solar powered battery chargers and a suite of USB cables. Our product roadmap encompesses a robust ecosystem of clean tech products that are sexy in design and strategically built to be modular for scalability. We view our business as an opportunity to reshape the way products are built and change is created from inception to execution.
