Inspired by the launch of Apple’s first iPod in 2001,

co-founders Dave Johnson and Raquel Skidmore developed

the first in-car iPod connectivity solution in 2002.
In true Silicon Valley tradition, the partners’ vision began

in a garage, but with rapid design success,

Coupage was placed on San Francisco’s emerging tech map

and in a proper office space.


A Few of Our Products Include

The company’s roots – and knack for developing technology tech firsts — date to 1981, when Johnson created Dragon’s Lair, the first video game to use animated graphic video.
