Ep 179: Interview with Izzy DiChiara, founder of Ubidock

I've known today's guest for a few years when he launched his first company Ubidock, a wireless charging system for bars, restaurants, coffee shops, hotels and other venues. Not only is this a solution for customers so their phone doesn't die but it also provides valuable customer data to the venue and keeps the customer there spending more money. Ubidock is still in growth mode but our guest Izzy is in the process of launching his next business called JackAI. Jack is a 24/7 chat service for everything home related. Whether you're trying to find a plumber or landscaper or any of a thousand other possibilities, soon you'll have Jack to help you. Learn more at and
