#StartupsOfNRF: Carlos Oliveira, CTO, Algramo on the Refill Revolution

January 8, 2022

Carlos Oliveira, CTO, Algramo joined me to discuss what Algramo is doing to drive the refill revolution.  I grew up drinking coke out of a glass bottle and returning the bottle to the #retailer for the deposit. That process fell out of favor in the 70’s.  Algramo wants to revive that process with a lot of 21st century technology #I0T.

This interview is the 7th in the Startups of NRF series.  I’ll ask each of the startups exhibiting in either the Innovation Lab or Startup Zone the same 8 questions listed below.

  1. Can you introduce yourself and tell us about
  2. Your company
  3. The problem you are solving
  4. The “pigeonhole” question:  Where does your solution sit
  5. Where are we in the adoption cycle for this technology?
  6. What is the message you’re sharing at NRF?
  7. How do you see 2022 shaping up

For all the college students out there

  1. What advice can you offer budding entrepreneurs?
  2. What skills that you use now that you wish you paid more attention to?
  3. How do we get in touch with you?

Give it a listen and let us know what you think?
