Grad’s “Claw” Goes to Market


It’s estimated that more than 50 percent of HBS alumni start their own company within ten years of graduation. David Moeller (MBA ’08) got a head start on that stat when he and partner Craig Forest of MIT invented “the Claw,” a bike storage system that works more easily than an ordinary hook. Moeller and Forest competed last summer on the ABC reality show American Inventor; although they weren’t among the finalists, their product is the first from the show to be officially brought to market by a major corporation. (Gladiator GarageWorks, a subsidiary of Whirlpool Corporation, will produce, market, and distribute the Claw.)
