Eggs 270: Starting, scaling, and selling your business with Chad Rubin

Hey everybody and welcome back to Eggs! Today we have special guest — the founder and CEO of Profasee — Chad Rubin.

Chad is a lifelong entrepreneur. In 2008 he decided to set up his first eCommerce shop — Crucial vacuum — selling vacuum cleaner parts out of his garage. It was a great success! It wasn’t long before that site exploded from just one to thousands of different SKUs, but that experience showed Chad one thing. Due to a lack of proper technology to manage their growth — and thousands of products — their warehouse became an absolute jungle to manage. To solve his own problem, Chad created Skubana, which went on to become one of the most powerful operations platforms in e-commerce.

On the back of the Skubana platform, Crucial Vacuum evolved from selling vacuum cleaner parts exclusively to covering all the replacement parts for your home. It also got a new name — Think Crucial. Skubana was eventually acquired by 3PL central, and in addition to the continued success of Think Crucial, in 2021 Chad launched his latest venture — Profasee. Profasee is a platform that enables Amazon resellers to dynamically predict the perfect price and the perfect moment for the products they sell using AI and comprehensive data management.

Joining us today for a conversation about his entrepreneurial journey, starting, scaling, and selling businesses, the state of eCommerce and so much more. Please join us in welcoming to the show, Chad Rubin.
