Noodoe, which offers electric-vehicle charging stations and a software “operating system” for those deploying the assets, has become the first tech firm to take advantage of a Peachtree Corners partnership with a Taiwanese incubator.
The northeast metro city’s Curiosity Lab innovation center and real-world ground for autonomous, connected and electric vehicles launched a partnership with Taiwan’s Startup Terrace on a virtual call in April, paving the way for future exchanges.
Noodoe co-founder and CEO Jennifer Chang, a veteran of early Taiwanese smartphone manufacturer HTC, visited Peachtree Corners last week to break ground on three charging stations slated for installation in the city. Noodoe was one of five firms that provided virtual pitches during the launch event.
Noodoe’s visit coincided with Taiwan’s participation in the Southern Automotive Conference, a massive auto-industry event also held in Gwinnett County at Gas South Arena.
Multiple companies made the trip to join the Taiwan pavilion, which joined the country pavilions of Japan and Canada at a conference that has become increasingly global as foreign investment in the auto sector has grown in the South.
Noodoe offers level-two chargers with a QR code-based payments system that requires no online account or login from the consumer. For those deploying the assets, Noodoe offers a cloud-based software platform that automates operations and monitors real-time data on revenues, energy usage and much more.
Startup Terrace is backed by the Taiwanese Ministry of Economic Affairs. Ms. Chang was joined by Martin Chen, commercial director of the Taipei Economic and Cultural Office in Atlanta, at the groundbreaking.
