Meet Liz, a Chicago-based social worker turned entrepreneur currently working on her second startup, Everpurse. She invented the smartphone-charging purse because she needed her smartphone to get charged on the go, in her purse. Viola!
Her subsequent Kickstarter campaign to make Everpurses en masse raised $153,835 – over 100% of its goal in less than 7 days.
Today, Everpurse is a company dedicated to bridging the gap between fashion and technology, starting with the patent-pending purse and licensing partnerships across the globe.
Don’t miss Everpurse inventor Liz Salcedo speaking at PITCH NYC Conference on November 14, 2012. Speakers include the female founders of Match.com, Meebo (acquired by Google), Songkick, DailyWorth and more!
