Technology: Insightful, Innovative, Relevant

Dyna, established in 1986 by renowned wireless experts Martin Cooper and Arlene Harris,
 supports insightful, innovative, relevant technology solutions that benefit society.

A Story of Change

Over the past several decades, Martin Cooper, inventor of the cell phone and technology visionary, and Arlene Harris, innovator and successful entrepreneur, have created new categories of products and services that have been adopted around the world. Their offerings have resulted in hundreds of billions of dollars in revenues and delivered better technology-enabled solutions to thousands of companies and billions of consumers.

Starting at the onset of the computer and wireless revolutions, Cooper and Harris independently, and later together through Dyna and its partners, successfully brought numerous consumer and enterprise technologies and companies to market. Since starting Dyna in 1986, they have made many important contributions through their insight, expertise, and collaboration with those who share their passion for technology and service innovation. A recent innovation is GreatCall, Inc. GreatCall was sold in 2017 and is now owned by BestBuy, grounding its senior market and connected health service offerings.

Both Cooper and Harris are Consumer Technology Hall of Fame and Wireless Hall of Fame members. In addition, they, and their innovations, have been recognized with many other industry, leadership, and service awards.

Dyna’s new innovation, Wrethink, is a transformative idea in the making. It represents a unique new category in the world of technology – a comprehensive secure family management service and ecosystem.
