Prieto Battery is not your typical battery startup. Prieto Battery was founded by Dr. Amy Prieto who driven by her interest in research, science, and discovery believes there is a better way to power our lives.
The strategy from day one has been to surround the invention with a diverse and talented team focused on the goal of creating the world’s most advanced rechargeable battery. A team inspired by innovation and motivated by the challenges that inevitably come up along the way.
Prieto Battery is not limited by the traditional incremental approach to battery design which focuses on improving one of the three key elements of the existing two-dimensional, acid-based batteries – an anode, a cathode, and a solid or liquid that separates the two.
Conversely, Prieto Battery started with a vision of the ideal solution and worked back from there. The result: a three-dimensional solid-state battery architecture that charges faster, lasts longer, and is better for the environment.
Today, we have achieved our original goal of developing a 3D solid-state Li-ion rechargeable battery that has higher power and energy densities, can be recharged quickly, and can operate well over a wide temperature range. We are now in a position to deliver prototypes to customers and initiate commercialization of our batteries in multiple markets over the next 2 to 3 years.
The journey is an exciting one and one we believe in. Beyond changing how people power their lives, Prieto Battery believes strongly in retaining why we started in the first place – a diverse, highly collaborative, environmentally conscious team driven to deliver on our promise to create the world’s most advanced rechargeable battery. This is what powers us.
