New company getting started
« on: August 16, 2018, 11:32:58 PM »
Hello all!

My personal background: I'm an avid tinkerer, maker, fixer, DIYer, and over-all gearhead! I've had multi-tools since I was around 8 years old (cheap no name was the first I had). Since then I've had Gerbers, Leathermans, Shrade, SAK, as well as a few lesser known. I'm a US Navy Veteran, I used to fly on P3-Orions as an In-Flight Technician (my ol' Gerber kept that ol' bird flying!). Since 2015 I've been working on designing a modular pivot system, so I can have a customizable tool that I can modify on the go.

GOAT Tools is the company I  founded in 2017 to complete this venture. I'm amazed I didn't know about this forum several years ago! But I am excited to get some feedback from fellow tool enthusiasts! I'll be posting more info about the future tool & the company in the R&D and Crowdfunding sections.

Respectfully,
Mike O'Donnell

Sounds good Mike, just make sure you talk to the forums owner Grant Lamontagne before you promote your products.

Correct, the site is currently just a landing page!

Waiting to get a provisional patent on the finalized design of the proprietary components before posting images of prototypes and renders.

Hello sir, and a warm welcome to the form.

Here you will find great likeminded and also extremely friendly and helpful people.

I myself am a venturing down the entrepreneurial route, however I am just starting out now, this year, and I am not in the tool industry.

I am interested in seeing what your company has to offer, sounds like an interesting business idea you have come up with.
