Nathanael Nienaber managed distribution for Georgia Pacific. One day it dawned on him: what if there was a way to quickly match an empty truck with someone nearby that needed to make a delivery? Nathanael took the idea to his MBA class and was encouraged to pursue it. His concept was eventually chosen as a finalist at the prestigious Startup Weekend.
