GWSB Students Market Reuseable Cups at Green Expo

GDCCSGreater DC Cup Share, LLC, will be selling its reuseable stainless steel coffee cups at the Green Festival in Washington, D.C., Sept. 21-22.

The cup-share business is a sustainability start-up that aims to provide reusable stainless steel cups to stores and restaurants in the greater metropolitan Washington, D.C., area, beginning later this year.

The goal is to create a ubiquitous cup-reuse system that will eventually eliminate millions of disposal cups from D.C.-area landfills.

The company was founded by CEO Kevin Brown; his partners are Aneta Samkova, the company’s chief marketing officer (CMO), and Zicky Anumudu, the chief information officer (CIO).  All three are studying at GWSB for Master of Science in Information Systems Technology (MSIST) degrees.

The festival – a showcase of green and socially responsible businesses, inventors, artists, musicians, politicians and others – will take place over two days at the downtown Walter E. Washington Convention Center.eg-dc-2013-thumb

Greater DC Cup Share will share a festival booth (#818) with a business founded by a GW graduate:  Waste Diversion, LLC, which provides services such as recycling, composting, hauling, signs, bins, and staffing and planning services, to outdoor events.  Its CEO and founder is Manmeet Poonam Sandhu, who recently graduated with a master’s in public health.
