1 Million Cups – Start-Up and Entrepreneur Networking
This week we are happy to welcome President & Co-Founder of Devil’s Foot Beverage Co., Benjamin Colvin to the 1MCAVL family.
“Our philosophy is “Keep it simple. Keep it Fresh.” By maintaining fresh, natural, and local ingredients, we are creating something to be loved by mixologists, brewers, festival-goers, and families – kids and adults alike. We think everyone deserves to have options of natural, flavorful, non-alcoholic drinks. Our styles don’t intimidate. They are special but highly approachable, straight-forward, and fresh. We strive to provide quality, all-natural, non-alcoholic beverages to Asheville, NC and beyond. We love our city and it’s commitment to supporting local – and we are great friends creating a great product for an incredible community!”
Don’t forget to bring your own mug; we can’t wait to see you!
***Do not park in the spaces behind Archetype – These are reserved for Moog. There is plenty of neighborhood parking, a paid city lot up the street on Broadway, and spaces under 240 by the murals.***
1 Million Cups Asheville celebrated a 5 year anniversary this past September, was awarded Entrepreneurial Resource Program of the Year at the 2018 Venture Asheville Honors & nominated again for 2019, and is our city’s longest running startup event!
Roughly 300 local startup founders and entrepreneurs have taken the stage over the past years to share their stories, triumphs, and challenges in front of a highly engaged and supportive audience. Time and again, the founders behind these companies cite the connections, feedback, and advice received as instrumental in their success.
“Based on the notion that entrepreneurs discover solutions and network over a million cups of coffee, the Kauffman Foundation developed 1 Million Cups – a free program designed to educate, engage, and connect entrepreneurs with their communities.”
1 Million Cups meets Wednesdays in over 180 cities across the country!
