Our history

The company was founded in 2012 in Brooklyn, NY. The company’s initial headquarters were located at the Urban Futures Lab. There, as part of the ACRE incubator, the company developed its initial business plan to create an analytics platform to accelerate large-scale development and adoption of lithium-ion batteries. Voltaiq received its initial funding in 2013 from the US Department of Energy as part of their SBIR program (Small Business Innovation Research) with additional funding provided by the National Science Foundation.

An angel round of funding led by Bee Partners of San Francisco was raised in 2015, and in 2016 Voltaiq successfully closed multiple customers including a major battery OEM, a Fortune 500 company and a global consumer electronics company.

Fast forward to 2018, and Voltaiq has closed an oversubscribed Series A round for $6.6M which was led by Anzu Partners and included SJF Ventures, UL Ventures and original angel investor Bee Partners. Their customer portfolio has continued to grow and now includes one of the Big 3 US automotive companies and one of the worlds largest internet companies.

Our values

Voltaiq believes that battery technology is the clear leader in the sustainable energy revolution. As hybrid and electric vehicles rapidly transition from being government-mandated “compliance” vehicles to mainstream transportation, and as wind and solar power have become bankable assets that continue to see broader deployment worldwide, companies are realizing that in order to meet the growing demand for electrified products their supply chains will need to expand significantly over the next decade.

These dramatic shifts from traditional power sources and the internal combustion engine to clean battery power has highlighted the need for more efficient battery development processes to meet the demands of greater energy density, higher reliability and significantly greater variation in form factors.

There is a significant gap in the number of battery engineers needed worldwide and that is expected to be the case for the foreseeable future. Coupled with the tremendous growth in battery data being generated, engineering teams are being forced to deal with IT issues (data collection and storage) in addition to finding actionable insights to make the informed decisions that balance product cost, performance, and reliability.

Our goal is to transform your battery experts into superheroes, providing them with powerful data discovery capabilities to quickly find the data that is relevant to the task at hand, and then delivering the battery-centric analytic tools that enable them perform predictive analytics, identifying problems before they actually occur. Our data management, discovery and analytics capabilities can significantly scale the resources of every battery design team from small startups to Fortune 500 companies and enable them to bring products to market on time, on budget, and with optimal device characteristics.
