In 2011, Dustin left his job overseeing a multi-million dollar budget and managing hundreds of employees in favor of starting his first app venture: a localized and analytically-driven digital coupon app called Carrot Saver. His team quickly realized that there was a huge industry need for high quality branding and responsive, custom web designs. This is how Carrot Creates was formed.
Like many start-ups, we started modestly. It began at a kitchen table. Then we graduated to late nights brainstorming and coding at Starbucks before eventually haggling for a shared office space. Then, one day, our hard work started to pay off. We suddenly were able to expand our team from a handful to 14 people, and moved into a large downtown loft. In less than two years, the team at Carrot Creates worked tirelessly to serve over 150 businesses across North America and grew by over 50% in 2015 alone. Now, we are 434 Marketing.
