episode 4: Kickstarting Quad Lock with Rob Ward

Join me as I talked to Rob Ward from Quad Lock about life starting a product that is now shipping around the world and firmly established within the cycling market. How did he grow this product from just a kickstarter campaign to now having a worldwide distribution within around five years.

Rob shares his passion for growing The Quad Lock business into all at different product expansions plus the challenges of being an entrepreneur in the space that constantly requires you to move forward and innovate to stay ahead.

How did they create this product? How did they think about it? and how did they make sure it would work? Plus Rob gives us his thoughts on pushing ourselves with an idea on how to move forward and gain momentum.

I’m now in Perth, having cycled from Sydney to Perth over the last few months, taking my time and enjoying the company of the welcoming people along the way. I’ll be sharing that story in the next episode of the podcast.
