Peter Marsh first met Rebeccah Byer last fall at an event sponsored by the Center for Creative Economy (CCE) in Winston-Salem, North Carolina.
As the two began to talk they realized that an idea of Byer’s might just be something they could both leverage their expertise on. The idea centered on developing a new product line that took already served wine and beer bottles, and up-cycling them into glasses and barware she could then sell back to the bars.
Margaret Collins is as focused as they come. She’s known for connecting entrepreneurs, investors, governmental leaders, and businesses, and putting together workshops and seminars designed to support folks who create their own companies. And lucky for Winston-Salem, because, like many cities, it’s working to redefine itself.
