We are thrilled to have Ray DelMuro as our September Startup Grind speaker. Ray is a prominent speaker on the Conscious Capitalism movement and engineer turned founder. We can't wait for him to share his story on founding Refresh Glass.
Refresh Glass actively partners with the community to divert thousands of wine bottles every week that would have otherwise been thrown away, working towards a 10 Million Bottle Rescue Mission. Once collected, they then transform the bottles into fun and functional glassware and decor such as planters, candle holders, and vases. (custom printing and etching for corporate/ closing gifts also available)
Some of the names Refresh Glass has worked with include Wolfgang Puck, Hyatt, 4 Seasons, Sheraton, Marriott, Kimpton, Ritz Carlton, Francis Ford Coppola Winery, and Whole Foods.
Ray DelMuro left his career as an engineer for an aerospace company to travel the world and discover his new passion profession. Before departing he had a goal to find a way to combine his passions for the function of engineering, with the animated responses to art, and to help the community all at the same time. After a year, 21 countries and 39 cities he returned and founded Refresh Glass, a company with a mission to rescue and transform 10 million wine bottles into functional glassware and home decor. Ray is a current board member for Conscious Capitalism Arizona and loves talking to people about value based solutions that combine the heart of a charity with the horsepower of a corporation.
