Banana Phone is a mobile handset that allows you to talk to friends and family-on a BANANA! It is a phone with appeal, and a cause - we've partnered with Gearing up 4 Gorillas to stream 1% of total sales to endangered Mountain Gorilla conservation in Virunga National Park, D.R. Congo.
To learn about the process of designing and delivering a product, from working with contract manufacturers in Shenzhen to marketing and fulfillment, I have teamed up with two friends, Brian Brunsing - the originator of the idea - Strategic Account Manager for Visa Inc specializing in SAAS Ecommerce payment products, and Max Brown, Director of Sales for Garrett Leather Corporation to produce banana-shaped bluetooth handsets. My central role as the technological co-founder of the project is to design and prototype the product.
