Martin Cooper net worth: Martin Cooper is an American inventor who has a net worth of $100 million dollars. Martin Cooper will be remembered forever for being the man who invented the cellular phone. Cooper was born in Chicago, Illinois, and graduated from the Illinois Institute of Technology in the early 50s. After serving in the U.S. Navel Reserves during the Korean War, he returned to the Illinois Institute of Technology to earn a Masters in Electrical Engineering.
