About David

Cribcut is my fourth company. At age 18 I started a landscaping company in Halifax that grew to $50,000 in yearly revenue. After a few years, I sold this company to an employee, who ran it ofr several more years. After dropping out of school I created ToothbrushSubscriptions.com, which was an e-commerce business similar to Dollar Shave Club. With thousands of toothbrushes sold, we were acquired by GoodMouth, a New York-based startup in a similar industry. Goodmouth was later acquired by Boka.com.

I then co-founded RetailKit with two friends in the Bay Area of California. We created software from the ground up for the needs of small businesses. We were acquired by Spiraledge in 2015. After this acquisition I spent 2.5 years working with their team on Tend.ag - a software solution for small, diversified farmers.

Next up is Cribcut!
