How a Search for a Bow Tie Turned Into a $65 Million Truck-Sharing Company

Jan 11, 2022

Fluid Truck founder James Eberhard shares his company's unusual origin story. Courtesy company In 2015, James Eberhard needed a bow tie. He had a wedding to attend in Brooklyn, and nobody, not even the "super hipstery" hotel he was staying at, had one. "I thought there'd be some type of com­mu­nity sharing," he says--a Zipcar for bow ties, if you will. There was not. So he launched an app--Fluid Share (which quickly changed its name to Fluid Market)--that allowed users to rent anything from tools to recreational gear. On day one, someone rented a truck. Eberhard, finding the truck-rental business especially dysfunctional, leaned into that early signal and in 2018 rebranded his Denver-based company to Fluid Truck, which now offers 24/7 access to hundreds of vehicles with an hourly, daily or weekly pricing model. The company closed a Series A round of $63 million in 2019, and announced a last-mile delivery partnership with Ikea in 2021. Inc. helps entrepreneurs change the world.
