Areas you service: Dome Audio is a tech company servicing a worldwide audience of audio and music lovers.
Summary of business: Dome Audio provides access to sound to audio and music lovers with its multi-patented Bone Conduction Headphone technology, i.e., the world’s first open and closed ear bone & air conduction headphones.
How many years have you been in business? Dome Audio Inc. was founded in January 2018. We have spent the last five years developing the intellectual property, engineering the business model, and solidifying the brand identity, preparing for our global debut this year, 2023.
How did you become involved in the tech industry? Founder and IP Developer of Dome Audio, Ben White, spent 25 years in the music industry as a songwriter, musician, and producer. His years of experience with sound and passion for tech development led him to develop a first-of-its-kind audio headphone that impacts how the world experiences sound. Co-Founder and Chief Strategic Officer of Dome Audio, Tim Wright, reached the pinnacle of professional sports by winning a Super Bowl while being an entrepreneur and founding his first business in 2016. With his degree in sociology from Rutgers University, the disciplines of a professional athlete within a world-class organization (New England Patriots), stellar business acumen, and the innate ability to engage with people and articulate the company, there are no boundaries with his abilities to be a trailblazer for the next generation of rising entrepreneurs. Ben White and Tim Wright’s partnership has forged a new chapter in the tech space.
What motivates you? Dome Audio’s mission to “Impact the way the world experiences sound” is our driving force of motivation. Developing a new form of headphone experience, giving the world access to sound for the hearing and deaf and hard of hearing communities, and expanding the boundaries of the status quo as black tech founders, is a challenge and motivation we are grateful to pursue each day.
What’s an interesting fact about your business most people don’t know? We thought bone conduction technology could be effective for folks with challenged hearing. Still, our visit to Gallaudet University (a preeminent DHOH institution) made it clear Dome Audio can uniquely impact a community of a half billion people who are deaf and hard of hearing. Through our national pop-up tour, it was confirmed we are delivering an experience as surreal and appreciated to the deaf and hard of hearing community as folks have expressed from the hearing community.
When did you join the AACCNJ? We joined AACCNJ in September of 2022 as President’s Club Member. As someone doing business in New Jersey, how does the Chamber help you? As a company founded in New Jersey with a global reach, not having to look far past the garden state, the Chamber has made connections with some of the most valuable relationships to help our growth as a company.
What has been the most valuable aspect of your AACCNJ Membership? The most valuable aspect of my AACCNJ Membership is the access and resources our membership level has afforded us. Being at the table with key members of some of the largest corporations in the world while having a leader like John Harmon and his team help navigate and cultivate these relationships has been a blessing.
What advice would you give to other AACCNJ Members? I want to leave my fellow AACCNJ members with food for thought, a quote from the book of Dome, “How do you use your time, do you spend it, or do you invest it?” Proactively engaging with AACCNJ is investing your time!
When you are not working, where do you enjoy spending your time in New Jersey? I enjoy spending time at the Jersey Shore when I’m not working. Growing up minutes away, the Shore was a place not often visited as one would think living so close, but when I do get the opportunity to get there, it is always home away from home and the chance to spend time with nature, family, and friends.
What is your favorite sports team? My favorite sports team is the New England Patriots. The Patriots have allowed me to be a World Champion, and I will forever be grateful for the culture, the leadership, and what being a Patriot stands for.
