About Us

Gophermods started in the founders dorm room at the U of M Pioneer hall in 2009. We started off as a custom video game accessory supplier, and we slowly turned into a repair company as we had more requests for repairs than accessories. Six months later after outgrowing the basement bedroom in the Como neighborhood, Gophermods opened up a commercial shop in the University Tech Center in Dinky town. We hired our first employees whom were all U of M students and we all ran back and forth from Dinky town to class, and the founder kept that up until graduating in 2011.

We are a Minnesota company with a passion for technology. We enjoy learning and being re-inventors in our field. We were your friends in science class and the person next to you in line to get the latest gadget.

We’re a small business and we embrace the benefits of the small business culture of: togetherness, friendliness, family spirit and “in it together” mentality. That mentality is the reason why Gophermods is so special and why we will continue to succeed in the future.
