Founded in May 2011 and headquartered in New York City, Uncharted Power is an award-winning, power company. With their proprietary MORE technology, they use renewable kinetic energy solutions to power microgrids for communities, large facilities and the Internet of Things.

Uncharted Power first began as Uncharted Play, a new kind of social enterprise grounded in play and the happiness of life, that would show the world how play could be a tangible tool for inspiring social invention.

​In 2008, Founder & CEO Jessica O. Matthews worked on a class project to invent the SOCCKET, an energy generating soccer ball, at Harvard University. Through her work on the project, Jessica quickly realized that the world of play and motion was truly uncharted territory when it came to tangibly addressing real issues facing society.  Jessica knew that an enterprise grounded in sustainable, realistic solutions for empowerment had real value.

​Building on its foundations with the SOCCKET, the company since evolved to pioneering more innovations within the renewable energy field. Updating the company name to Uncharted Power, it has expanded its focus by developing the technology within the soccer ball, MORE (Motion-based, Off-grid, Renewable Energy), and designing kinetic (motion) energy generating solutions for infrastructure and smart applications.

Uncharted Power’s primary clients are large corporations and governments across Africa, with a particular focus on partners in Nigeria, Rwanda, Angola, Malawi, and Senegal. The company’s main goal is help power the rapidly developing smart communities across the world by utilizing the untapped kinetic energy available in a clean and renewable way.
