The state of charging across smartphones has notoriously become ridiculous with many different styles of chargers required depending on what type of phone you have plus you have to get one for each type of environment you want your phone charging in. One company called MAGFEST is looking to change how we use chargers today with their MAGFEST Chargers shipping late 2019. By purchasing a MAGFEST Charger, you’ll be able to plug in your phone or use the wireless pad on each charger to make sure that your phone is charged enough no matter what type of smartphone you are using. To understand how MAGFEST was able to get far with creating their product, you need to look into who founded the company.
Before pushing start on their crowdfunding campaign, MAGFAST knew they had a product that consumers would believe in and they were right as they were able to easily reach their goal of $300,000 in less than 15 minutes after starting their campaign. The reason why their product was able to be funded so quickly was due to work by Seymour Segnit. As CEO of the company, he was able to work with a team of professionals to create a product over multiple months that customers would love. To get in the position he is in today, Segnit studied engineering at Oxford University which gave him the ability to notice what a quality product looked like, even if he was taking the role of CEO. From there, he gained experience at a USB charger company for 3 years in which he was then inspired to create his very own product. After gaining experience at the USB charger company, he moved on to MAGFEST where he helped create the line of products that they are known for today.
