Describe the company – the elevator pitch …
Technovator XE – an innovative technology of energy transmitting for a long distance. Firstly our system will charge the smartphones over a distance up to 5 meters. The system consists of case and base. The transmitter generates an electromagnetic field in a radius of 5 meters. All receivers that are configured in the mode of resonance with the transmitter receive electricity. Internal rectifier converts electromagnetic waves into electricity in the circuit, which is used for charging the device. During charging, the receiver can be moved in a radius of 5 meters from the transmitter in different positions, the charge will not stop.
Our system solves the problem of tracking the level of charge. Buying our product user receives the transmitter, with which he/she can charge the devices: smartphones, tablets, etc. at home, office or vehicle. It’s not necessary to control and periodically charge devices with our product. In comparison with other products that exist on the market Tehnovator XE allows freely use the devices. The closest competitor exist on the market is the Qi technology. Our technology allows to charge smartphones without cable.
How are you different?
Our key competitors are not providing this solution on the market yet. Ubeam, Cota, Energous – they are all using a different approach.
Technovator technology is more effective and safer than the approaches that our competitors are taking.
1) We use safe technology based on low frequencies which are safe for humans and the environment. Such frequencies are constantly surround a human in everyday life.
2) Technovator technology, in accordance to further development, will allow increasing efficiency and a distance without harm for human and animals.
3) Technovator technology passes all standards for certification FCC and CE for using at home environment.
Why will the company / product do well?
TechnovatorXE – remote wireless charging for smartphones (a distance of up to 5m), it consists of case and base. Base works as transmitter, case works as a receiver. Since spring 2015 we have achieve a good parameters and results also we have presented our working prototype at IFA 2016 and CES 2017
Where are you based?
The team is fundamentally based around an R&D Lab from Kiev in Ukraine, head-office in Poland (Kepno) With a strong research background in physics and electrical engineering the team has invented a new method of transmitting power over distances of up to 5m.
When was the company launched?
What have been your biggest wins to date?
Our company Technovator has developed remote wireless charging over a distance. Limited battery capacity is the most painful problem of modern smartphones. Web browsing test for battery life shows that iPhone 6s Plus and iPhone 7 battery life is just about 4 hours of active using. We developed an unusual decision of short battery life problem. Instead of constantly limit yourself in using your gadgets, we suggest smartphone users to charge their gadgets at anytime and anywhere.
Technovator as a winner at Vernadsky Challenge.
The top five start up at SVOD in Dublin 2016
To this date we have a strong passionate team. We believe that great things in business are never done by one person. They are done by the team of people. We have developed beta version of our prototype with effective parameters I think that our biggest win will be in the future.

Tell us about your team?
We are a young team of 4 founders and 4 professionals including electronics engineers, constructors, managers and 4 Ph.D consultants. We also work with external experts and scientists. We also work with external experts and scientists.
The team comprises two key attributes:
1. Technology – this is a core team of scientists that have researched and developed the remote power transmission technology. Lead by Ivan Chuba (CTO) who has a background in both scientific research and start-ups. He previously lead the product development (as CTO) for iBlazr – which ran a successful Kickstarter campaign and is now in full production. He works with team of electronics engineers with strong focus on energy.
2. Start-ups and company build.
Leszek Sawicki (CEO) Founder of Progress Engineering that employs over 300 people and is in the top 10 Polish engineering businesses. With a strong emphasis on design solutions it has succeeded through the application of innovation and new technology to end-end manufacturing solutions. Leszek is both an investor and provides in-depth of experience in production systems. He has experience of fund-raising, building businesses, product development and commercial leadership.
Ruslana Dovzhyk (HR/communication manager), team dynamics are key for start-ups, Ruslana has 16 years of experience in recruiting and retaining dev and commercial teams. She has more than 2 years’ experience in project management.
