The Olio was the featured business for Upstart Live! at Flywheel on Feb. 5th-7th. The collaborative event took a startup idea from conception to market in just 48 hours. The result? A new line of sustainable glassware to be developed using recycled bottles from restaurants and bars in Winston-Salem. This line will be unique for WS and develop sustainable revenue for The Olio.
