Our Founder's Story
In the fall of 2018, Keep's Founder, David Moeller, had his car broken into for the third time. He searched the internet for an easy-to-install device that would deter thieves. After finding nothing that he could buy to protect his car, he set out to build a solution.
If you can't find an ideal product, build one.
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 CodeGuard, the leader in small business website backup, and grew its customer base to over 1,000,000 users.
Start iterating. And then move fast.
After failing to find a solution, he did the next sensible thing for a serial entrepreneur. David hired engineers and started building a prototype. Hundreds of discussions with potential customers and focus groups drove the design. He learned that the device needed to be easy to install, easy to use, and effective at deterring thieves before they committed the crime.
You’re never going to get there on your own.
With the prototype defined, it was time to find a partner to help with manufacturing. That’s when Keep started working with Chicony, a world leader in consumer electronics, and the force behind products from Google Nest, GoPro, Amazon Ring, and many others. Headquartered in Taiwan with manufacturing around the world, Chicony is an undisputed global leader, specializing in video products.
