North Carolina Entrepreneur Who Created Phone Accessories Teams Up With Emmy Award-Winning Artist
CHARLOTTE (FOX 46 CHARLOTTE) – A Charlotte entrepreneur who created a phone accessory in 2017 is teaming up with an Emmy-winning artist.
âI never invented anything in my life,â said David Britt, co-founder of Spiider Griip.
But that changed, when the music producer heard a story from a friend, who saw a man drop his phone in the toilet.
âHe says, ‘you’ve got to find a way to keep people from dropping their phones,â Britt said. âI started doing pictures and then some really lucky things happened,â Britt said. “I found a designer, engineers, lawyers, I went for it and here we are today.”
The company launched Spiider Griip in 2019, distributing Charlotte’s product. It sticks to the back of your phone, rotates 360 degrees, and can be used as a kickstand.
âPeople love them,â Britt said. They love them.
On Thursday, the company announced the global superstar and owner of NASCAR Pitbull as a partner and advisor.
âWe all know he’s a talented artist, that’s obvious, but the amount of business knowledge he has, the creativity, he’s brilliant,â Britt said.
He says he intends to continue growing the business, but will never forget how it started.
âI’ll probably never know the man who dropped his phone there, but thank goodness my friend saw him do it,â Britt said.
