Josh Holstein is the Founder & CEO of CellARide, a midwest technology company pioneering automotive marketing technology one message at a time. With headquarters in Springfield, Mo., Josh has grown CellARide from an idea to a high-growth company garnering national attention. Company growth was catalyzed by investment twice from Capital Innovators, a Top 10 technology accelerator, and sustained through partnerships and agreements with Toyota, Nissan, Honda, GM, and the National Safety Council, among others. With his vast hands-on experience with innovation, Josh has created an “on-demand innovation help desk” called Drive To Innovate, with the goal to help other entrepreneurs and companies from making the same mistakes he has during his journey.
