1 Million Cups St. Pete Returns to In-person Hybrid Events

The Greenhouse is bringing 1 Million Cups back LIVE in-person to Thrive DTSP! We will follow our regular format, where 2 entrepreneurs present for 6 minutes, followed by 20 minutes of Q&A with a short break in between.  Of course, the coffee will also be back, thanks to the ongoing support of Kahwa.

Not ready for in-person, just yet? We’ll be streaming on Facebook Live!

Join us Wednesday, Aug. 4 @ 9 – 10 a.m.  to welcome:

Ashley Haywood, Embrew Tea 
Ashley has always loved high-end tea, but was annoyed with measuring out loose leaves, cleaning out the infuser, and the sticky honey. She created Embrew lightly sweetened tea bags to make a perfect brew every time so we can all enjoy more tea with less hassle. 

After boot-strapping her side-hustle tea business for over 3 years, a corporate layoff pushed her into full-time entrepreneurship, her debut with 1 Million Cups, and a St Pete Pitch Night win. This Wednesday, she’s back with us to give updates on how the seed money has helped move the business forward and where it’s all headed. 

Krista Shafer, Better Together 
Better Together helps families in crisis while keeping children out of foster care. They partner with local congregations to gain volunteers who want to actively serve and love others in their community. Their team is dedicated to helping people help themselves. 


Million Cups is a weekly event for local entrepreneurs to meet, present their startups, and gain feedback from the thriving peer network of St. Petersburg’s local business community.
