His winning idea is to put cellphone-charging kiosks at malls, airports, grocery stores and other sites where people are in a hurry. A 10-minute charge at the Charge N Go kiosk would cost $1, and would juice up smartphones, laptops and tablet computers. Users could lock their device inside the kiosk while they ran a quick errand.
â€œIt all started when I joked that my phone was always going dead when I was at the mall,â€ said Driver, an 18-year-old freshman at Howard University in Washington, D.C.
Driver won his entrepreneurial bona fides through the Future Founders program, sponsored by the Chicago-based Future Founders Foundation. The foundation is a newly created spinoff from the Chicagoland Entrepreneurial Center, aimed at introducing young people to a variety of career ideas.
