In 2011, David Krett, the founder of w2d consulting, became a co-founder and CTO of an Asian Based Internet startup what2do.asia. David led the development and deployment to production of this platform using a Ruby on Rails stack. In 2015, the founders decided to wind down this startup due to an inability to find product market fit and David relocated back to North America - where he founded - w2d consulting.

From 2015-2018, prior to deciding to focus w2d business efforts on Web3 and Defi, w2d consulting was involved in numerous application consulting assignments for several NGOs as well as working with startups providing technical solutions to scaling issues they had encountered.
