Founder, Chief Operating Officer
Connect-UV is the dream of a young entrepreneur looking to make a positive difference in the world. At the age of 14, Nic Brown realized the dependency teens and others have on their devices. It was clear to him that this dependency creates big challenges for his peers to connect with one another without their devices.
At the same time, he was becoming aware of how phones and devices are magnets for germs, bacteria and viruses. And the lack of cleaning was making our treasured phones some of the dirtiest items in our homes!
Nic was determined to solve these problems by utilizing UV light to clean phones while they charged, and by giving people an opportunity to connect without their devices at the same time.
Connect UV was established in 2020 in Scottsdale, Arizona with the full support and encouragement of his parents, Wendy and Eddie Brown and his Uncle, Tom Mitchell. 2020 was certainly a year of many challenges with the coronavirus pandemic and our renewed interest in cleanliness and stopping the transmission of germs. The hope and dream of our family is to do what we can to have a positive impact in helping others.
We hope you enjoy our quality products with a full commitment to your complete satisfaction.
Wendy is the co-founder and the President/CEO of Connect-UV. She always encouraged and supported the entrepreneurial spirit of her son, Nic, since a very young age. This was her inspiration to start the family business with Nic and help fulfill his dreams while having a positive impact.
