Barry Stiles is the founder of TRUEGRID Pavers, an engineer, a dad, a serial inventor, and cancer survivor.
TRUEGRID Pavers are the 100% permeable paving alternative to concrete and asphalt. Designed to combat flooding, handle heavy trucks and traffic, and provide 100% pervious cover, our system absorbs storm water instantly and detains water below the surface. Our mission is to give developers, engineers and architects green paving solutions to build a safer, cleaner, toxin free environment for our kids.
TRUEGRID installations are in millions of square feet across the globe in low impact developments from driveways through multi-acre commercial and industrial parking lots and the resulting positive environmental impact. TRUEGRID is a green, permeable paving building block system for the real world, made in the USA from 100 % post-consumer recycled plastic and filled with gravel or grass for a natural aesthetic.

This week’s featured founder is Barry Stiles, Founder and CEO of TRUEGRID Pavers. Yes, a paving company. My hope in exploring stories like Barry’s is that you will process his challenges and triumphs to see the commonality within your own journey, too. And yes, when most people think of a startup they immediately think of technology. But every single business you interact with was a startup at some point. That is why I love exploring the startup stories of a diverse collective of founders, like Barry and TRUEGRID Pavers.
