They started the custom decal business in their garage and started soliciting business by knocking on doors of nearby businesses.  After years of trial & error, blood, sweat, and tears the company grew to be a successful printing, sign, display, and branding company.  Through organic growth and acquisitions, the company grew to be a printing powerhouse winning the Fastest Growing Companies award 4 years in a row and servicing over 10,000 annual clients in all 50 states of the US and Canada.Stapper has now founded, acquired, and invested in a broad portfolio of businesses and real estate.  He currently spends his time acquiring, growing, and investing in companies as one of the Co-Founders and Operating Partners at a boutique private equity firm called Crown Grown.Stapper currently sits on the board of the Entrepreneur Organization with over 13,000 members worldwide and the board of the FBI Citizens Academy which supports FBI community outreach.
