Bevi is building a world without bottling plants, where networked machines purify water and create personalized beverages directly from the tap. Bevi's first product is a machine that mixes specialty still and sparkling drinks using purified tap water and fruit concentrates.
The MIT Venture Mentoring Service was one of our earliest helpers as we took Bevi (then called "Refresh") from a rough idea to a real company. When we got started in the summer of 2013, our initial product idea was extremely complicated; VMS guided us in simplifying the idea so that we could get our first products to market faster. The staff and mentors are always available to help in any way - giving advice, acting as sounding boards for new ideas, and connecting us to potential partners or clients. VMS was also one of our first beta customers!
