COO and co-founder of OLIO

Saasha Celestial-One is the American-born COO and co-founder of zero food waste app OLIO. Celestial-One, a name chosen by her hippy parents in rural Iowa, went on to work as an analyst at Morgan Stanley after graduating in economics at the University of Chicago in 1998. She started an MBA program at Stanford University Graduate School of Business in 2002 where she met OLIO’s British co-founder Tessa Clarke.

The American banker joined McKinsey & Co in 2003 as an associate in New York and managed to get a transfer to work at McKinsey in London in 2005 when her boyfriend went to study at Cambridge University in England. In 2007, she became VP of business development for American Express. She left Amex in June 2013 and co-founded My Crèche in London as CEO of the pay-as-you-go childcare service. Both OLIO co-founders were mums with young children in North London when they decided to pool together their savings to develop the OLIO app in 2015.
