Julia C. Silverman is the co-founder of Uncharted Play, Inc. and the co-inventor of the sOccket, a portable generator in the form of a soccer ball. Her long-term interest is in entrepreneurial approaches to social progress. Julia graduated with honors from Harvard University with a degree in Social Anthropology and Economics; her studies focused on development initiatives in sub-Saharan Africa. Julia has lived and worked all over Africa with notable field initiatives in Tanzania, Uganda, Kenya, and South Africa. Before founding Uncharted Play, Julia previously worked at the World Bank as an Analyst for the Africa Sustainable Development department, and at Innosight, a consulting firm for innovation strategy founded by Harvard Business School Professor Clayton Christensen.While Julia is not an engineer by training, her first-hand knowledge of daily life in resource poor communities (and the global love for soccer) inspired the sOccket generator concept. While skeptics initially believed the ball would not capture a useful amount of power, Julia and the sOccket team knew that the ability to harness even a little bit of energy could make a huge difference in the lives of billions around the globe. Now, as the Chief Social Officer at Uncharted Play, Julia oversees the distribution of mass-manufactured sOccket balls to communities in need around the world.Julia graduated with honors from Harvard University with a degree in Social Anthropology and Economics; her studies focused on development initiatives in sub-Saharan Africa.

"An idea for clean energy, that I think its fair to say, hardly anybody else on the planet would have ever thought of!" ~ President Bill Clinton about Julia Silverman's Soccket Ball.
