Tod Barrett - OneBlade

March 5, 2021

Tod Barrett is the CEO of OneBlade, Inc. Tod has taken an initial concept of creating a tool that would allow men to enjoy a “barbershop” quality shave at home and brought it to reality. After 1 ½ years of research and development, Tod led OneBlade through five years in the marketplace achieving over 40% year-over-year growth.

A graduate of St. Mary’s College in California, he joined Manufacturing Modes, Inc., a propriety design and contract manufacturing business. Following, he served as President of CD3, Inc. before becoming Chairman of the Board. In 2011, CD3 Holdings, Inc. acquired Ronco. Tod started OneBlade, Inc. in 2013.

According to OneBlade, shaving shouldn’t be cheap. A ritual performed every day between an individual and a sharp blade should be a throwaway. A good, clean shave is preparation to start the day strong with an investment in better skin. OneBlade has embarked on a tireless mission to capture that unparalleled barbershop feeling and translate those decades of expertise into a safe, attainable, and just-as-special morning luxury. Tod worked with the best design and engineering teams to create the first single-edge shaving system focused on optimal head design, pivot, and blades for a barbershop-quality wet shave easily master at home.

Ben Labra - Gesture

Ben Labra - Gesture

February 9, 2021

Originally from Denver, Colorado, Ben Labra brings 20+ years of experience in management, operations, technology and leadership. An entrepreneur at heart, Ben started a successful IT business at the age of 16 while working the counter at a local KFC restaurant. Over two years, Ben raised enough start-up capital to purchase two franchises by the age of 18. Two years later, he sold both businesses for a strong return and enrolled in college to pursue a degree in information technology and business.

Ben visits with Mitch on the podcast to tell his back story, how he got into the start-up tech business and what his company, Gesture, is all about.  You can also watch a video of their discussion on our YouTube Channel.

Resized-C3MAX.jpg

Immediately following graduation, Ben began a career in finance with Citi as a desk trader and later moved to the risk and compliance department. After 5 years with Citi, Ben made his way into higher education. In 2010, Ben joined the executive team of a large beauty, health and wellness education firm as the Chief Admissions Officer, where he eventually managed 150+ people and held various roles in Admissions, Revenue & Marketing.  During this time, he also pursued executive education degrees at Columbia Business School followed by WashU Law School.

Gesture_Logoac2g3.png

After leaving corporate life, Ben returned to his entrepreneurial roots and founded the first LinkedIn for high school students; yondster.com. This afforded Ben experience in coding & software development, startup operations, data science, and technology management. A few years later, realizing that flower & gift delivery is very expensive and the delivery process is extremely slow & unreliable, he and his co-founders created a less expensive, more attractive, faster option to send thoughtful gifts; flowers, wine and more. Think of 1-800-flowers meets Doordash.
