About

Tejas Shastry, Mike Geier, and Alex Smith met in a Northwestern University entrepreneurship class during their engineering PhDs. The trio wanted to solve a problem that most people experience — their smartphones and wearables run out of power at the worst time.

As active urbanites, they explored the possibilities of capturing their own energy from daily activities to charge their smartphones, then engineered a solution to do just that: the AMPY MOVE motion-charger, a portable smartphone battery that charges from kinetic energy. The three entrepreneurs formed a start-up team of designers and engineers to fabricate AMPY MOVE prototypes at Northwestern’s Segal Design Institute.

After hundreds of hours of testing trials, reviews from customers and 3D-printed models, AMPY MOVE was born. The wearable device has won numerous awards, and the team was named to Forbes 30 under 30 in Energy.

AMPY's vision doesn't stop with the AMPY MOVE. The team is already scaling down the technology inside of AMPY to power wearable devices, so they never have to be plugged in to the wall. Now that is smarter power.
