Bonus content: sharing app Olio's co-founder, Saasha Celestial-One

Season 1

Is it possible to create a multi-million pound business without losing your ideals; even the ones you’ve held since childhood?

This is An Invitation to Meet... Saasha Celestial-One, co-founder of sharing app Olio. Originally a way for communities to share unwanted food, it’s now expanded to include much more.

Listen to the full episode HERE.

Saasha tells us about the negotiations to raise $43 million dollars in round B funding last year, and how she “stalked” a Tesco boss to secure a deal helping the supermarket distribute surplus food.

And we chat about her early days growing up in Iowa with her “hippy entrepreneur” parents, who instilled in her the value of not letting things go to waste.
