Founded in 2012 by CEO Tal Sholklapper and CPO Eli Leland, Voltaiq’s mission is to drive innovation and improve the devices that power our electrified world. The idea for Voltaiq grew from the founders' frustration with existing data tools while they were developing cutting-edge energy storage technologies. Voltaiq’s vision is to provide the leading informatics platform and expertise for optimizing energy device performance throughout the product life cycle.
