Noah Glass is the Founder & CEO of Olo the leading provider of digital ordering and on-demand interfaces for the restaurant industry. Glass is an industry visionary whose mobile ordering work pre-dates the iPhone, beginning with text message ordering on feature phones in 2005. His work in the foodservice industry began nearly twenty years ago, serving as a cashier, server, bartender, and delivery driver. His passion for entrepreneurship was ignited by his time in Johannesburg, South Africa with Endeavor, a non-profit promoting high-growth entrepreneurship in emerging markets around the globe. There, he opened the first affiliate Endeavor office in Africa by leading fundraising, building the Board, hiring the management team, and finding the inaugural class of Endeavor Entrepreneurs in South Africa. After returning to the states, he founded Olo and sits at the helm of the company as it leads the E-Commerce awakening in the restaurant industry, still in its early days. Today, over 50 million consumers use the Olo platform to Skip the Line® and have food delivered from restaurants they love. Olo’s clients include Applebee's, Baskin-Robbins, Chili’s, Chipotle, Denny’s, Five Guys Burgers & Fries, Jamba Juice, Noodles & Company, Shake Shack, sweetgreen, Red Robin, Wingstop, and more. After working at Industrial Light and Magic, Glass was a co-founder of Odeo, the failed podcasting company that would form an unlikely bridge to Twitter. Ev Williams, Odeo's CEO, put Glass in charge of the social messaging project that Jack Dorsey and Biz Stone were instrumental in conceiving, as well. Glass undertook the assignment with a passion as a true believer in Twitter's potential. But by 2006, when Twitter launched, Williams had fired him. Subsequent years saw Glass come away with stock and "a small amount of cash."
