Promethient was founded in 2012 by Charles Cauchy, a recognized expert in the field of solid state heating and cooling using thermoelectric devices. Promethient’s solid state heating and cooling technology is marketed under the Thermavance™ brand name. As a seasoned inventor, Mr. Cauchy has completed extensive global intellectual property work to protect the company’s proprietary technology.
Upon the receipt of funding from Boomerang-Catapult in 2017, Promethient was reorganized as a Delaware C-corp. Shortly thereafter, Bill Myers joined Promethient as its CEO with the goal of assembling a professional team to bring Thermavance to market.
