Our Founder's Story

If you can't find an ideal product, build one.

In the fall of 2018, Keep's founder had his car broken into for the third time. He searched the internet for an easy-to-install device for a car. David owned a Ring doorbell and wanted something similar with sensors, cellular connection, video feed, and a loud alarm to deter thieves. He found nothing of the kind.

David had already built two successful companies by solving problems through technology. He invented The Claw, a bike rack system that has sold over 1,000,000 units since inception. He also co-founded CodeGaurd, the leader in small business website backup, and grew its customer base to over 1,000,000 paid users. After finding nothing that he could buy to protect his car, he set out to build one.

Our story
Our mission

Start iterating. And then move fast.

Working with a small team of engineers, David set out to build a connected car alarm. Through extensive user feedback, the design evolved to close the loop on the drawbacks of many of the most popular designs. The Keep Vehicle Monitoring System is the company's first product and focuses on security and safety. It is an incredible marriage of hardware and software that has the change the lower auto crime substantially.

With the prototype defined, it was time to scale. That's when Ian Matthews & Jonathan Manuzak, two of Keep's investors, joined in full-time roles. Ian as Chief Revenue Officer to drive sales, marketing, and awareness, and Jonathan as Chief Technology Officer to oversee hardware, firmware, cloud, mobile, and mechanical. They helped build out the team that's driving Keep forward today.
