Sakti3 Participates in White House Demo Day
August 5, 2015
Sakti3, Inc. participated in the inaugural White House Demo Day. The event, hosted by President Barack Obama, celebrated the important role entrepreneurship plays in the United States’ economy.
“We are deeply honored to be invited to showcase our technology at the White House,” said Dr. Ann Marie Sastry, CEO and co-Founder of the company. “And we are very pleased to be able to describe our journey – from fundamental university R&D to partnerships with professional investors and manufacturers.”
Unlike a private-sector Demo Day where ideas are pitched to funders, the White House Demo Day features innovations that will have a global impact. Sakti3’s participation in the inaugural Demo Day is a continued sign of forward progression for green technology as Sakti3 strives to develop solid-state batteries for use in automobiles, a development that would have an obvious impact on reducing global pollution.
