Weekly Meetup: 1 Million Cups
Feb 28 2018 - 9:30am to Feb 27 2019 - 9:00am
1 Million Cups is a free, national program designed to educate, engage and connect entrepreneurs. Developed by the Kauffman Foundation, 1MC is based on the notion that entrepreneurs discover solutions over a million cups of coffee.
Every Wednesday from 9 AM - 10 AM, two entrepreneurs will have the opportunity to present their startups to a diverse audience of mentors, advisors, and entrepreneurs. Presenters prepare a 6 minute educational presentation (not pitching) followed by 20 minutes of audience feedback and questioning. All backgrounds are encouraged to attend in order to give the diverse feedback to the presenters. Entrepreneurs gain insight into possible ways they can improve their businesses, gather real-time feedback, connect with a community that truly cares about their progress, and walk away feeling like they have advanced their business. The audience also learns a great deal from the presentations. Whether this is through passively listening, deeply engaging with the entrepreneurs, or sending feedback through the 1MC app, there is much to learn every week from these dynamic and diverse communities.
Added bonus! By attending 1MC each week, you can stay and work at Enterprise Coworking Rino for the whole day. Please check-in at the front desk after the meeting to get free access to the building for the day!
