While many incredible success stories were born in house garages, Portabl’s began in an old dovecote in the heart of Belgium.
Oftentimes, we hear that innovation comes from the most eccentric ideas. But in their case, it was a pretty simple one, guided by a corporate mission, i.e., “Reinventing portability and efficiency of people all around the world on a day-to-day basis”.

The company started in 2015 from a simple idea and Charlee’s passion to enter the startup world. He has always been captivated by the stories which started in the Silicon Valley garages. It all started from a personal need and after proof of his concept handmade, he clearly understood that it was a need of millions of laptop users around the world.
Charlee Jeunehomme, with Laurent Wéry and Thomas Castro, successfully invented the world’s first triple screen extension for laptops on a single USB cable.
