For OtterBox founder and CEO, Curt Richardson, entrepreneurial drive has always been a way of life. As a kid, Curt organized yard sales and started a lawn service business. By 21, he owned a plastics and tooling company and from there created several businesses. Combining his industry experience with his passion for innovation, Curt created the first prototype of a waterproof case in his garage in the early 90?s and in 1998, OtterBox was born. OtterBox evolved into a leader in protective cases for mobile technology and is ranked No. 70 on the 2011 Inc. 500.
