PopSockets LLC is a Colorado-based company founded in 2010 by former philosophy professor David Barnett. Barnett was looking for a way to prevent his earbud cord from getting tangled, and he glued two buttons to the back of his phone and wrapped them around the buttons. In 2014, PopSockets was launched out of his garage in Boulder, Colorado and today has offices in Boulder, San Francisco, Hong Kong, Shanghai, South Korea, Japan, Helsinki and Colombia. More than 195 million PopSockets grips have been sold around the globe on our websites and at retail. PopSockets is on a mission to create an eternal positivity machine that fuels the health and happiness of the planet with innovative, expressive products and community empowered activism.

To date, Poptivism has generated over $3.8M for over 400 non-profits.
