Martin Cooper net worth: Martin Cooper is an American inventor who has a net worth of $100 million dollars. Martin Cooper will be remembered forever for being the man who invented the cellular phone. Cooper was born in Chicago, Illinois, and graduated from the Illinois Institute of Technology in the early 50s. After serving in the U.S. Navel Reserves during the Korean War, he returned to the Illinois Institute of Technology to earn a Masters in Electrical Engineering. He began his professional career working for the Teletype Corporation, and then moved on to a job at Motorola, Inc. He served as Senior Development Engineer, and it was there that he developed the first handheld police radio system. The system was created for the Chicago police department and went in to use in the mid-60s. It was, in essence, the precursor to the cellular phone. He went on to head Motorola's communications systems division, and created the first portable cellular phone in 1973. It would be ten years before the phone would hit the market, but it would change communications forever. He has since founded multiple related companies, as well as published numerous papers on the subject of cellular communication. He has also been honored by dozens of organizations for his contributions to technology.
Martin "Marty" Cooper (born December 26, 1928 in Chicago, Illinois, United States) is an American pioneer and visionary in the wireless communications industry. With eleven patents in the field, he is recognized as an innovator in radio spectrum management.
While at Motorola in the 1970s, Cooper conceived the first handheld mobile phone (distinct from the car phone) and led the team that developed it and brought it to market. He is considered the "father of the cell phone" and is also cited as the first person in history to make a handheld cellular phone call in public.
Cooper is co-founder of numerous successful communications companies with his wife and business partner Arlene Harris; also known as the "first lady of wireless." He is currently co-founder and Chairman of Dyna LLC, in Del Mar, California. Cooper also sits on committees supporting the Federal Communications Commission and the United States Department of Commerce.

Cooper graduated from Illinois Institute of Technology (IIT) in 1950. After graduating he enlisted in the U.S. Naval Reserves where he served as a submarine officer during the Korean War. In 1957 Cooper went on to earn his Master's degree from IIT in electrical engineering and in 2004 IIT awarded Cooper an honorary doctorate degree. He serves on the University's Board of Trustees.
Cooper left his first job at Teletype Corporation in Chicago in 1954 and joined Motorola, Inc. (Schaumburg, Illinois) as a senior development engineer in the mobile equipment group. He developed many products including the first cellular-like portable handheld police radio system, produced for the Chicago police department in 1967.
By the early 1970s, Cooper headed up Motorola's communications systems division. Here he conceived of the first portable cellular phone in 1973 and led the 10-year process of bringing it to market. Car phones had been in limited use in large U.S. cities since the 1930s but Cooper defied the industry's narrow visi
