Disruptive innovator, Christina Lampe-Onnerud took her solution to an unmet need and amplified it to a global scale. The inorganic chemist began working on her game-changing lithium battery in her old carriage house and expanded it to a world wide market, gaining clients like HP, Asus, and NASA.

Dr. Lampe-Onnerud founded Boston-Power in 2005. Leveraging her network in China, she ponied up her own money to test-run designs of a more muscular lithium-ion battery that could sustain 1,000 charge-and-discharge cycles (vs. the standard few hundred) with no loss of cell capacity over time. Her batteries have set the new standard of the home electronics industry and are making an impact in the energy and transportation sectors as well. Her li-ion batteries are key ingredients in laptops, solar panel systems, and electric vehicles.

Before founding Boston-Power, Dr. Lampe-Önnerud was one of the youngest partners ever appointed at Arthur D. Little/TIAX, where she ran the company’s globally- renowned battery labs, defined strategies for the world’s top chemical and battery organizations, and directed high-profile market evaluations. She has over 80 patents in various stages of filing and has received a range of industry awards.

Keynote Speech


Dr. Christina Lampe-Onnerud tells how pursuing an unmet need raised the bar for an entire industry. Throughout her early career as a researcher, business developer, and manager, a question nagged the back of her mind: “What if you could just make a battery that worked better?”

In the early 2000s when laptop battery life plummeted from 4 hours to twenty minutes within 6 months of purchase and a slew of lithium battery explosions were kept out of the public eye until a massive recall by Dell and HP, Dr. Lampe-Onnerud decided to turn her carriage house into a laboratory to invent a longer-lasting safer battery. In this incredible story of growing an international billion-dollar business out of what was basically her garage, she details how she hired a team, leverage connections in China, raised funds, and secured clients to bring her invention to mass market and numerous industries.
