uBeam is developing breakthrough technology to wirelessly charge electronic devices and build the energy infrastructure of the future. Via pioneering ultrasound technology, uBeam is working to create safe, wireless energy to power personal devices such as phones and laptops in homes, offices and public spaces.
Meredith Perry is the inventor of uBeam, a technology that transmits power over the air to charge electronic devices wirelessly. The idea for uBeam was conceived while Meredith was studying at the University of Pennsylvania in 2011, where she entered and won “PennVention,” the Penn invention competition that recognizes ground-breaking technological innovations. Just four weeks later, Meredith was invited to demo uBeam’s technology on stage at the esteemed Wall Street Journal “All Things Digital” Conference. She holds numerous patents related to the uBeam technology.
While at Penn, Meredith served as a student ambassador for NASA, where she worked on technology to detect life on Mars, experimented in zero gravity and researched and published papers in astrobiology and medicine. She graduated in 2011 with a degree in paleobiology and wrote her thesis on astrobiology.
Meredith has been included in Fortune’s “40 Under 40” Mobilizers, Forbes’ “30 Under 30” and Vanity Fair’s “The Next Establishment.” She has also been recognized as one of Fast Company’s “Most Creative People” and is the recipient of Elle Magazine’s Genius Award. She resides in Los Angeles.
