Today we’d like to introduce you to David Dresner. Them and their team share their story with us below:
David Dresner, born in Glencoe, Illinois, was drawn to St. Louis for college where he attended Washington University in St. Louis. David graduated in 2010 from the Olin Business School with a Bachelor of Business Administration (B.B.A.), and a major in Finance and Healthcare Management. While in college, Dresner received the Balanced Man Scholarship.
At an early age, David was an entrepreneur. And, inspired by a fortune cookie, David came up with the idea to place messaging on coffee sleeves. During his academic experiences, David learned what it would take to make a disposable sleeve that was able to relay an updated message after studying the infamous newsvendor dilemma. Sleeve a Message, David’s first company, was born out of a South City basement where he built a custom coffee sleeve printer, “RumpleSleeveSkin.” What started as a one man operation in a St. Louis, South City basement, has grown into a 35,000 square foot facility with over 3,500 active clients around the world, including Tim Hortons, Sysco, Aramark, Compass Group, Au Bon Pon, Target, Lululemon, among many others. Today, the company has 25 employees, and actively ships products to all 50 states and 12 countries.
