Embrew Wins St Pete Pitch Night
October 22nd, 2020
It was an amazing experience to pitch for $5,000 in seed money at St Pete Pitch Night. The other 4 start-ups are fantastic and will continue to be very successful. It was an honor to pitch alongside them and I can't thank The Greenhouse enough for the opportunity to participate and the judges who believed in me enough to score my pitch above the others. This money will be able to help pay for the new packaging for Embrew that will make our products shelf-ready for retailers.
Excerpt from the article:
The [St Pete Pitch Night] event, which focuses on showcasing, elevating and seeding community-based businesses, featured presentations from five local entrepreneurs seeking funding to help grow their companies.
“St. Petersburg is a city that celebrates small businesses,” said Mayor Rick Kriseman before announcing Embrew as the winner. “We really recognize the important role small businesses and entrepreneurs play in our community, and it’s what sets us apart from so many other cities.”
