ISF Incubator Launches New Startup Juice-BX, a Provider of Charging Stations for Smart Devices

January 24, 2018 Dallas and Bellevue, WA

ISF Incubator, the startup arm of Intellectual Ventures, has launched Juice-BX, a startup building power-charging stations for smart devices.

ISF Incubator, the startup arm of Intellectual Ventures, has launched Juice-BX, a startup building power-charging stations for smart devices. Juice-BX stations will allow customers to stay powered up and connected while on the go without carrying their own phone chargers and cables. The company will offer both stationary and mobile charging stations for smartphones, other mobile devices and electric vehicles, and will roll out its first stations in Texas before expanding to other regions in the United States.

Juice-BX formed in December 2017 as a result of the relationship between ISF Incubator and Technium, a program that matches world-class entrepreneurs with inventions to form new businesses. Headquartered in Dallas, Juice-BX is led by CEO Robert Brevelle and a team of engineering and vending operations experts. Juice-BX has exclusive access to select patents and patent applications related to charging stations, vending and advertising owned by The Invention Science Fund, which is managed by Intellectual Ventures. In addition, ISF Incubator provides financial support and access to Intellectual Ventures’ network of mentors.

“With more people using their mobile devices more often, there is a massive need to stay charged and connected anywhere, anytime,” said Brevelle. “We feel our stations will be a great solution for both businesses and consumers by offering reliable, secure and flexible power charging for a variety of devices in a wide range of locations, from grocery stores to restaurants, from malls to outdoor festivals.”

The Juice-BX charging stations will be composed of individual charging lockers to keep each device secure, a credit and debit card scanner for on-site payments, and customizable advertisements. The company will offer larger stationary charging stations as well as mobile versions, and will coordinate strategic partnerships with businesses that can benefit from this technology, including malls, restaurants, convention centers, sports arenas and hotels. Over the coming months, Juice-BX will continue to develop its software and build prototypes, and the company anticipates testing its charging stations in Texas later this year.
