Britton has been an active entrepreneur since the age of 19 when he filed his first patent and now holds over 70 patents and patents pending.

In 1985, Britton founded Axonn Corp, which in 1989 became the first U.S. Company to be granted wireless spread spectrum equipment approval by the FCC. Between 2000 and 2002, Britton closed $20 million in venture capital transactions for Axonn LLC, at the time a record for a Louisiana based technology firm.
