Everybody wants a better battery, Christine Ho is printing one

View descriptionShare

This summer, Bloomberg Green reporter Akshat Rathi visited Imprint Energy, a Silicon Valley startup that prints batteries. Using the same tools as screenprinters, Imprint Energy prints thousands of batteries to power shipping labels that can report the movement, temperature, and even humidity that packages are exposed to. Imprint’s batteries are being tested by companies that ship food, crop seeds and even vaccines. Akshat speaks with founder and inventor Christine Ho about how she bootstrapped the company, raised $25M, and why these small batteries made of a glue-like goo can cut down waste and reduce emissions.
