Ramonte Forte learned the hard way just how easily someone's identity can be stolen. That led to create
, a wallet that specializes in keeping the prying eyes of thieves out of your personal information.
The Security Wallet is wallet that looks a bit like a smartphone case. The waterproof product, made from recycled plastic, comes with a combination lock. It can hold 10 credit cards and cash. The TechTown
-based business has developed a prototype and work on mass producing the item later this year.
Forte, a former autoworker, recently participated in the New Ventures program provided by the Michigan Small Business and Technology Development Center
. That played a major role in providing him with the tools to begin building his business over the last year.
"It gave me a great deal of information on how to approach inventions from an investment standpoint," Forte says.
