Dave Weiner Quit His Job As A CEO To Found Priority Bicycles And Pursue A Childhood Dream

Dave Weiner worked for Cole Systems for more than 9 years. He became a CEO there, but he quit. Why? He just wanted to pursue his childhood dream. Some people might find his decision strange, but I find it awesome. I really admire such people and I wish him the best of luck. Don’t we have just one life to spend it chasing the dream of someone else? Now, Dave is a CEO too, but at his own company called Priority Bicycles (http://www.prioritybicycles.com/). Here is his story of how it is published on their site:

Priority Bicycles

Dave Weiner, started Priority because he was frustrated with bicycles in market. He found that cheaper bikes weren’t so cheap after all of the maintenance that needs to go into them, and that all of the technological advancements in cycling had only been implemented in high-end performance bicycles. Dave dreamed of a bicycle that was high quality, easy to maintain, and built specifically for recreational cyclists. He grew up in the bicycle industry, and after spending many years in computer software, he wanted of getting back into the industry and realize this dream.

Priority Bicycles launched on Kickstarter in July of 2014. We were initially hoping for $30,000 in backing during our 30 day campaign, but reached this goal in under 2.5 hours, and in 30 days reached over $550,000. Between all of our Kickstarter backers, and all of the phone calls, emails, and test rides we’ve given at our office, we quickly realized Dave’s dream was one shared by people all over the world.
