David Dresner CEO of Sleeve a Message, a Coffee Sleeve Retail Business


Age 24 | Sleeve a Message | CEO

I am a Chicago native that made my way to St. Louis. At the age of 10, I came up with the idea to place messaging on coffee sleeves. During my academic experience, I learned what it would take to make a disposable sleeve that was able to relay an updated message after studying the infamous and archaic newsvendor dilemma. Sleeve a Message was born out of a South City basement. I built a custom coffee sleeve printer, “RumpleSleeveSkin,” and grew the business to more than 100 clients relationships throughout North America in the first year.
