Jesse Lear, serial entrepreneur and inspirational speaker, is Co-Founder and CEO of V.I.P. Waste Services. Headquartered in Columbus, Ohio, the boutique waste firm partners with apartment communities as a luxury amenity to pick up trash and recyclables from every resident’s door.
Since its launch in 2010, V.I.P. Waste has grown from 0-7 figures and beyond and now serves thousands of customers per day with operations in multiple cities across the Midwest. The company was recently named one of the Top 30 Startups to Watch by Entrepreneur Magazine and received the Empact100 award at the United Nations.
Today, Jesse continues to lead V.I.P. Waste while also guiding the growth of several other ventures including Nellie’s Natural Ice Pops (handcrafted gourmet popsicles), PackMouse (valet storage), and Party For A Reason (unforgettably cool event planning for non-profit organizations). Jesse and his ventures have been featured in Fortune, Inc, Fast Company, Time, Success, and other publications.
In his spare time, Jesse enjoys trying new restaurants, watching the Andy Griffith Show, and traveling to interesting places.
