About Ember Technologies Stock

In 2010, entrepreneur and inventor, Clay Alexander, embarked on a journey to revolutionize the tabletop industry by incorporating thermal technology into dishware to keep food, drinks and other temperature sensitive items at consistent temperatures. After years of research and development and numerous innovations, Alexander created and patented the technology to keep food and drinks at a precise temperature, forming the basis for Ember. Combining a foundation of patented technology and cutting-edge design, Ember launched its first product – the Ember Travel Mug – in 2016. The Ember Travel Mug launched in Starbucks and sold out in days, creating a new category of temperature control drinkware and establishing Ember as the category-defining brand. Ember’s second product – the Ceramic Mug – launched in over 4,500 Starbucks stores in 2017 and was received with enormous success. It was also named one of TIME Magazine’s 25 Best Inventions of 2017. Ember’s success has enabled the company to attract a world-class group of engineers and leaders who bring experience from brands such as Apple, Amazon Labs, Beats by Dre, Under Armour, Google, Microsoft, Nokia, and Skechers. Ember also has a prominent celebrity investor list including Demi Lovato, Nick Jonas, Joe Jonas and several others who promote the brand. Ember is executing a focused strategy to disrupt several multi-billion dollar categories, penetrate international markets, and become the next household brand name.
