Description

The buzz is back in the City of Poughkeepsie and with the launch of PKGO, it is bigger than ever. On April 2nd, 2019, the debut of PKGO Getters will take place at 5:30 PM at the Bardavon, Poughkeepsie with featured speaker, and Poughkeepsie native, Jessica O. Matthews, Founder and CEO of Unchartered Power.

The mission of PKGO is to highlight the City of Poughkeepsie as a thriving, and growing city and to create a positive sense of community amongst current and future residents, businesses and visitors. As a PKGO Getters herself, Matthews exemplifies the very core of this campaign. Matthews’ extensive resume includes achievements such as an invitation by President Barack Obama to the White House to represent small companies for the signing of the America Invents Act in 2012.

Matthews is the CEO and Founder of Uncharted Power, an award-winning energy and data technology company that develops infrastructure solution, which she founded when she was only 22 years old. Her research and career centers around the intersection of disruptive technology, renewable energy, humane behavior, and the psychology of self-actualization. She was named Fortune’s Most Promising Women Entrepreneurs, Forbes 30 under 30 list alum, Inc Magazine 30 under 30 and Harvard University Scientist of the Year. These accomplishments giving her the apropo statement, “If ever there was an innovator, she’s it”, said by former President Bill Clinton.

City of Poughkeepsie Mayor, Rob Rolison states "We are excited to bring these PKGO Getters events to the City of Poughkeepsie. We look forward to hosting our first one April 2nd and are beyond thrilled to have Ms. Matthews as our featured speaker.
