A Nap Leads To First Black-Woman Owned EV Charger Company

The benefits of napping are well-documented but in the case of Natalie King, a little shut-eye after attending church led the former attorney to create Dunamis Charge, the first black-woman owned manufacturer of electric vehicle recharging stations.

“I woke up from that nap and there was a clear direction of the next thing you need to do is electric vehicle charging manufacturing,” recalled King in an interview at her company’s booth at the Motor Bella auto show near Detroit.

Of course creating Dunamis wasn’t really as simple as some sleep and a revelation. The journey began in 2007 when King and her now, ex-husband, started a solar energy firm as an entrepreneurial venture. But, “when the marriage dissolved we dissolved the company,” she said.
