Sanderford & Son – Out to Lunch – It’s New Orleans

Remember that time you had a good idea that was going to make you a millionaire? It was probably an idea for an app, right? In the back of your mind you’re still thinking about doing it – if you could just find the time to figure it out. And find someone who builds apps. And find someone to kick in some money.

Brice Sanderford

Brice Sanderford knows the process. He built the app MySquad. MySquad hooks up people looking for a place to go out right now with bars and restaurants that have special deals right now.

Britton Sanderford

Brice’s dad, Britton Sanderford, has had one or two good ideas of his own. Actually he’s had more than 70 of them. That’s the number of U.S. patents that are in his name.

You might not know it, but you’re probably using some of the technology Britton Sanderford invented right now. If you’re a convicted bank robber, or you own a bank, you have come in direct contact with Britton’s creations.

The Sanderfords arguably have the highest father-and-son IQ in New Orleans.
