Weekly Meetup: 1 Million Cups

Feb 28 2018 - 9:30am to Feb 27 2019 - 9:00am

Entrepreneurial Events

The program takes place every Wednesday morning from 9:00-10:00am in locations all around the country. The Denver Chapter meets at Colorado Lending Source weekly.

1 Million Cups (1MC) is a simple way to engage entrepreneurs in communities around the world. Each week, the 1MC program offers two local entrepreneurs an opportunity to present their startups to a diverse audience of mentors, advisors, and entrepreneurs.

Presenters prepare a 6 minute educational presentation and engage in 20 minutes of feedback and questioning after they present. Entrepreneurs gain insight into possible ways they can improve their businesses, gather realtime 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 or deeply engaging with the entrepreneurs, there is much to learn every week from these dynamic and diverse communities.

Choosing a Business Entity: Tax Consequences, Reporting Requirements and More!

Aug 9 2018 - 10:00am to 12:00pm

Among the many decisions you as a new business owner must make is choosing which entity (ie: legal structure) will be best for your company. While there are many other important concerns related to entity choice - e.g. legal liability, raising capital, operational matters - this workshop presents the topic from the unique perspective of a CPA and therefore has much to do with taxes (cue scary music...)

Cost: $40 PRE-PAY ONLY
