Tell us about your startup...

The product is a truck fifth-wheel release puller tool. It's designed to operate a specific, and widely used, brand of fifth-wheel release mechanism with a safety catch. Works with all other fifth-wheel releases as well. (The tractor and trailer are joined by the 'fifth-wheel.')

How far along are you in your startup?

Been underway for over a year. Patent application filed. Have had some sales. Just introduced another new model, now have 3 models.

How can we help you with your startup?

I'm interested in networking with others to help with get this project off the ground. MKE business Meetup groups have provided good contacts in this direction already, and I hope for more. Specific area of interest for me on this project include: retail product labeling; metal engraving or weldable metal tags (product name, customer fleet name + logo, serial or unit numbers - deep enough to with stand painting or finishing); marketing.


I'm doing a start-up of a product designed to reduce driver injury in the transportation industry. Professionally I'm a civil/EEO/commercial­ mediator, with a background in management and start-ups.
