For those new to this blog series, each month I'm featuring up-and-coming entrepreneurial talent. Fresh entrepreneurial talent continues to inspire me everyday in my line of work and I want to highlight hard-working trailblazers to celebrate strong entrepreneurial skills.
This month, I'm featuring the young environmentalist, Hamza Ansar, CEO and Founder of PRSRV, the world’s most eco-friendly mobile charger and power bank. As the owner of multiple sustainable businesses, I always appreciate those who are forging ahead with sustainable ventures.
So what exactly is PRSRV?
Passionate about the environment, Ansar’s concern about the looming energy crisis fueled his re-imagination of how consumers power personal electronics.
Innovative and energy efficient, this power bank is designed to preserve and extend the battery life of your device. Most cell phone users will charge their phone overnight to ensure they'll have power the next day. Although this seems logical, it wastes energy and can even overheat and damage your phone’s battery, which shortens it's lifespan.
PRSRV’s unique design prevents this by automatically cutting off electricity to the device once it’s fully charged, which conserves energy and protects your device. Once your mobile is fully charged, the electric supply begins ‘PRSRVing’ the energy within the power bank, for on-the-go charging later.
Ansar, along with his team of electronic experts, have successfully conceived and developed a brilliantly convenient design as well. PRSRV has an ejectable credit card shaped battery that fits inside your wallet, making it the first power bank to allow the user to power up their devices in two locations at once.
This feature is attractive for entrepreneurs who are constantly travelling for work and play. Having the ability to keep my phone charged anywhere, anytime would give me peace of mind.
Is it good for the environment?
This business originally caught my eye because of its eco-friendly focus. Sustainability is a something we’ve committed to at The Cadman Capital Group, and most of our businesses are sustainable. I like to celebrate other businesses who put in the extra effort to do their part.

When can I buy this product?
PRSRV launched their Indiegogo campaign in March of 2017 and have already reached double their original goal. They plan to begin shipping the eco-friendly power bank in June, 2017.
I’m looking forward to the launch of PRSRV and what else what else they will do with its environmentally friendly technology.
