John Wu


CEO and Co-Founder

John Wu is a seasoned wireless products executive with over 20 years of experience in the wireless and IoT industry, at companies including Novatel Wireless and Motorola. He led global teams that have successfully shipped products with over 4 million units annual volume, generating over $400M in revenue. Responsible for P&L for MiFi Labs, John was one of the key inventors of the MiFi mobile hotspot - selected by Time Magazine as one of the top gadgets of the century. John currently holds 18 patents, with an additional 26 patents pending. His latest brainchild, Gryphon Online Safety, Inc. was founded in San Diego in 2014, after becoming worried about his daughters being exposed to inappropriate internet content. As a concerned parent, John quickly got to work on a solution and filed patents later that year, with the first Gryphon prototype developed by March 2015. By 2016, Gryphon had evolved to a more complete product involving not only easy to use parental control but also IoT security. With agreements and partnerships signed with world-leading manufacturing and security software technology companies, Gryphon is running a preorder campaign on Kickstarter.
