ChargedUp produces and distributes mobile charging stations in pubs, bars and restaurants. With 98% of their network in lockdown, the British startup leveraged their solutions and network to develop and distribute low cost hand sanitising stations. The end-to-end solution can include delivery, installation and the supply of hand hand sanitiser on a weekly basis. Three versions of the “CleanedUp” stations, ranging from 5 liters to 40 liters, were produced within just three weeks. The largest version with 40 liters can be used up to 20.000 times before it needs refilling. They are currently working on a smaller version to support smaller venues like pubs, bars and restaurants.
These stations are already in use by companies like DHL or HelloFresh. Most notably, the startup partnered with the NHS (National Health Service) to place these hand sanitizing stations in the London Nightingale hospital. Now, the startup is looking for more partners to place their CleanedUp stations in shopping centers, transportation hubs, offices, supermarkets or any other public location. The London-based startup has raised 3.70 million US dollars in funding from investors like Wayra, M Ventures and JamJar Investments.
