We are very proud to announce that Tom Szaky is joining Rebuild21 in May 2013.
TerraCycle is one of the world’s foremost leaders in eco-capitalism and upcycling. In 2006, Inc. Magazine named TerraCycle, “The Coolest Little Start-Up in America!”, and the same year Tom Szaky was named the “#1 CEO in America Under 30″.
Founded in 2001, by Tom Szaky, TerraCycle began by producing organic fertilizer, packaging liquid worm poop in used soda bottles. Since then TerraCycle has grown into one of the fastest-growing green companies in the world, with a selfdeclared purpose of eliminating the idea of waste.
Rebuild21 celebrates the people and start-ups who are making a difference as a 21st century business. Tom Szaky’s TerraCycle is a tangible example of how individuals can transform a global challenge into a business opportunity – in this case by successfully uniting purpose, profit and worm-poop. Join Rebuild21 and hear Tom Szaky present his inspiring story, which started in ad dorm-room and turned into a multi-million dollar business.
