MistoBox is a curated coffee delivery subscription service based in Phoenix, Arizona.
MistoBox started as a University of Arizona Entrepreneurship Program project during the founders' senior years. The founders, Samantha Meis and Connor Riley, launched a successful Kickstarter project in 2012 to obtain the initial funding for their business. Upon graduation, Samantha and Connor had to make a decision whether to get plain old jobs or continue building their business.
Sam and Connor fortunately chose to carry MistoBox forward. In fact, they just hired their first employee.

MistoBox works out of the "warehouse district" area of downtown Phoenix. Their offices are right next to another Phoenix startup, WebPT, and a short walk from the DiamondBacks stadium.

Samantha gave a quick introduction to MistoBox on the final morning of the Startup America Regional Summit. Everyone in the room was impressed by what Samantha and Connor have already accomplished. It's hard not to cheer for these guys. They are a great part of the small but thriving entrepreneurial culture in Phoenix.
