James Heller of Wrapify
CEO & Co-founder
As a kid, James would beg his father to take him to the Porsche dealership to sit in the cars. He was completely obsessed with German sports cars.
James bought his own Porsche when he was 26. Two years later, he sold that car—and cashed out his 401(k)—to launch Wrapify, a startup with $2.9 million in funding that pays average Joe drivers an average of $350 a month to wrap their cars in advertisements and simply drive around.
Wrapify now has 35,000 drivers in 27 cities and counts Anheuser-Busch, Petco and eBay as clients. Just last month, Wrapify was named to Inc Magazines list of America’s Fastest-Growing Private Companies
