Dai Technologies Corporation’s expertise is electric vehicle (EV) adoption and EV charger infrastructure development. Our mission is to provide urban communities (people and businesses) equitable access to the EV charger infrastructure. Our aim is to remove physical and financial impediments that discourage investments in the EV charger infrastructure in densely populated communities. Sheryl Ellison Ponds, Founder & CEO Sheryl Ponds BSME, MBA is the founder of Dai Technologies Corporation, a woman and minority-owned electric vehicle (EV) charging installation consultancy ensuring access to public and at-home charging. Founded in 2018, DaiTechCorp’s model is a turnkey solution that helps residential and commercial properties adopt charging stations into a property, connect to programs and benefits, and install EV stations. Like many EV drivers dealing with Range Anxiety (RA), the anxiety of being stuck on the road due to the limited availability of EV charging stations, Sheryl was initially hesitant to purchase an electric car. Instead of waiting for change to come, Sheryl turned to entrepreneurship and took matters into her own hands. Sheryl believes she is destined to build the fueling infrastructure for EVs. This STEM and MBA grad has enjoyed careers in manufacturing, banking, economic development, and commercial real estate. Building a future without RA energizes her vision of a world with equitable access to EV charging networks. Inspiration to Start Company My desire for a new Electric Vehicle was tamped down by this reality: my side of town lacked an EV charger infrastructure. Range Anxiety and personal safety were real concerns that actually discouraged me from purchasing an electric vehicle. The local market at that time had no desire to serve me and the communities I am most familiar with, so I founded Dai Technologies Corporation.
