In 2010, we wrote about a group of Harvard students who had developed a soccer ball that stores the energy it’s subjected to in order to power an LED lamp later on, offering an eco-friendly way to power lights especially in regions where electricity is scarce. Since then, that group has gone on to found Uncharted Play, and the SOCCKET ball has found funding through a successful Kickstarter campaign. We caught up with Jessica O. Matthews, Co-founder and CEO of Uncharted Play, who spoke to us about the difficulties of succeeding with a socially beneficial product in the often dog-eat-dog world of business.
