Sean Carrigan

Tech Leader of the Year

Two years ago, tech innovator Sean Carrigan, along with business partner and engineer Jason Palmer, developed a solution to a common problem experienced in our smartphone reliant world with the creation of MobileQubes, a cordless, small battery pack that allows consumers to charge any device with a USB port — including tablets and iPads — while on the go. The battery packs are dispensed from automated, self-service kiosks. Users can rent them for $4.99 a day and 99 cents for every additional day.

As of July of 2016 there were 110 kiosks nationwide, with hopes to expand to 500 locations.  The startup has secured more than $1 million in investments and signed deals with big-name partners such as Caesar’s Entertainment and Amtrak.

In March 2016, MobileQubes was awarded a $100,000 prize from the Coulter Idea Pitch competition that took place during New Orleans Entrepreneur Week.
