Our company is called SparkLife, Incorporated and is based on creat-
ing new ways to power up electronics. We created a better, alternate way to
power an electric car called the TurboSpark. The TurboSpark is a power sys-
tem that we will implement into a car so that it can be powered completely
by electricity. Our product uses energy through capacitors, which are small,
metal, and chemical-free plates that are able to be charged with electricity
and can be utilized at later times. We created the TurboSpark because the
use of hybrid and electric cars is starting to rise and the technology sup-
porting those types of cars is being encouraged. Also, we at SparkLife aim to
reduce the use of regular car batteries due to their use of dangerous chemi-
cals that can potentially hurt the environment through pollution. These
chemicals can even harm humans directly, so the TurboSpark was created to
completely eliminate these hazards.
The TurboSpark, as stated earlier, is a capacitor powered energy
source for cars. We shall propose to car companies to create a new model
around our TurboSpark system. Its designed to be placed where car batter-
ies would normally be, but would take up more space to match the capacity
of a car battery. Capacitors have a quick charging time and will be able to
go to 300 miles on one charge under regular use. The TurboSpark will be
compatible with nearly any outlet.The price of the TurboSpark will be $7,500
per system, covering the materials and is a current competing price against
other electric car companies.
The TurboSpark has an opportunity to enter the market with the
growing research and use of hybrid and electric cars. Also, regular cars take
up limited resources, such as gasoline, that without caution, could be deplet-
ed in the near future. Disposal of regular batteries is also a great concern as it
creates pollution through toxic chemicals that should not be left unchecked.
Greener options for practically any product are also being researched and
produced, so creating a non-chemical car power source and reducing use of
lead-acid and lithuim-ion car batteries is a perfect opportunity for us.
E x e c u t i v eChanging the w
orld, one car at a time.
SparkLife plans to advertise the TurboSpark to the public by first selling to already famous car companies such as Toyota, Honda, General
Motors, etc. Selling to other companies will help us avoid the hassle of con-
vincing the public that our product is good since they are already trusted
companies by the public. Afterwards, we plan to advertise our TurboSpark
system through multiple kinds of media such as television, magazines, radio,
and online advertisements.
We at SparkLife hope you will fund our company with a total of
$4,000,000 for our operations. With that money, we can drive towards the
future of automobiles as well as to a greener future without the use of
chemically-filled batteries that could harm the environment and us as well.
With the help of you and our CEO Willey Rillo, CFO Alexandra Sangalang, and
VP of Marketing Ricardo Martinez, we hope to charge up the future.

Founders Willey Rillo, Ricardo Martinez, and Alexandra Sangalang met in the Digital
Safari Academy and later again in the University of Phoenix for their physics class, but what
they didnt know was that meeting each other would result in creating a company together
in the future. Their physics professor demonstrated a strobe light to the class and taught
how a capacitor, an energy storage device much like a battery, but capable of charging and
releasing energy much faster, works. History records show that German scientist invented
the capacitor in November 1745. Several months later Pieter van Musschenbroek, a Dutch
professor at the University of Leyden made a capacitor in the form of the Leyden jar, which
was credited as the first capacitor. Fascinated with the origin and the ability of the capacitor,
the three believed in the potential of the capacitor to be an alternative power source for an
important machine in everyday life: a car. During their free time and on the weekends, they
all decided to map out plans for a new way to power cars, and were dedicated to improve
all aspects of the project. After graduation, the trio decided to create the company SparkLife
Incorporated, believing that large amounts of energy should now come in small packages.
SparkLife, Incorporated is dedicated to revolutionize the car industry
through changing the standards set by companies before us.
Born in Walnut Creek, California, Ricardo
Jose Martinez is the VP Marketing director for
SparkLife. He got his degree of marketing at
the University Of Phoenix in Arizona. As part of
Mount Diablo High Schools Digital Safari Acad-
emy, Ricardo has partaken in projects such as cre-
ating plans to help third-world countries, as well
as creating a spoken word poem with accompa-
nying video. He also has experience working in
stores, which became helpful in his choosing to
pursue a degree in Marketing. His background
was hard for him in the past to focus in his life
dream to change the world.

Born in the Philippines, Sangalang earned a
Bachelor of Science Degree in business administra-
tion from the University of Phoenix in Arizona. She is
a devout Jehovahs Witness, with much of work done
in the field spreading knowledge of her beliefs. Along
with that, she, like her fellow officers, was a part of the
Digital Safari Academy, creating a music video for Tell
Me Something Good by The Rocket Summer. She has
also collaborated with groups to create documenta-
ries as well.
Alexandra Sangalang, chief financial officer, is re-
sponsible for ensuring that the flow of money within
SparkLife Incorporated is conducive to profitability,
and also promotes continuous financial progress.
Other areas of responsibility include accounting, tax,
budget, treasury, insurance and credit.
Born in Vallejo, California, Willey Rillo is the pillar
of SparkLife, Incorporated. He was brought up
with interest in the creative arts and was mani-
fested in his work in the Digital Safari Academy
of Mount Diablo High School. There he learned
about music, photography, and film production.
His projects include creating songs and accom-
panying music videos, filming a two-part docu-
mentary called Details in the Fabric, and more.
Through the academy, he was also part of an in-
ternship program where he worked in John Muir
Health as part of the techincal support team.
He later graduated from the University of Phoe-
nix in Arizona with a degree of Master of Business
Administration and led his fellow officers into
creating SparkLife, Incorporated.

Cars are the prominent mode of transportation, and loads of chemi-cals are in each car battery. Problems with car batteries mostly occur during
warm weather, and heat causes the chemicals inside to evaporate. Used bat-
teries also end up as electronic waste.
SparkLife, Incorporated introduces the TurboSpark, an alternative
power system for cars that will eliminate the hazards of a regular car battery
through the usage of capacitors. The system makes it perfect on the go, and
can charge and discharge whereas a regular battery cant.

Electronics are important everyday factors for each individual, espe-cially battery-powered ones. Globally, the battery market is about $50 billion,
and $5.5 billion is set aside to secondary or rechargeable batteries. Technol-
ogy continues to grow, driving battery supply and demand to increase as
well. Primary batteries, like alkaline, dominate market because of their higher
energy densities, and will lead the market as years go by. Editor Sam Davis for
Power Electronics Technology reported that there is a need for batteries for
medical devices because of the growing amount of senior citizens. Research
is being made for looking at alternate
