  • Deal type: Seed round

Founded by Clay Canning and Rashaun Brown, Screen Skinz offers screen protectors with designs that are visible when the phone screen is black and disappear when the phone is in use. Customers can create their own designs or choose from the company's existing catalog.

The global screen protector market is estimated to be worth $51 billion as of 2023. Screen Skinz has already secured creative licenses with various big-name brands, including the NFL, NBA, Marvel, and the WWE.

The latest fundraise enabled Screen Skinz to move manufacturing from Asia to the U.S., allowing for better control over its supply chain. The company plans to focus on the screen protection industry and may expand to making screen protectors for tablets in the future.

Brown and Canning took their time during the fundraising process, which lasted about a year, as they sought to refine their supply chain and prepare inventory for a mass go-to-market.

Investors were attracted to the company's unique concept and its ability to deliver personalised products on time and at a reasonable price. Screen Skinz is focused on customer acquisition and deepening licensing relationships and may look to raise funds again as early as next year.
