One Million Cups is a platform for all aspiring and seasoned entrepreneurs. The monthly gathering brings brilliant minds, a foundation of inspiration and a catalyst for connections like no other.
In communities across the nation, 1MC has become the go-to destination for entrepreneurs eager to showcase their ventures, gain valuable insights and connect with a supportive network of like-minded individuals.
The premises is simple yet powerful: every second Wednesday of the month, entrepreneurs gather over a cup of coffee (or two) to present their business ideas and projects in a friendly, welcoming environment. Each presenter has just six minutes to captivate the audience with their vision, challenges, and achievements, followed by a brief Q&A session.
Founded by the Kauffman Foundation, 1MC is based on the notion that entrepreneur’s network and discover solutions over a million cups of coffee.
During May’s 1MC cup event, VeggyDog, a family-owned, 100% Veteran operated business that offers high-quality dog treats made with healthy ingredients and Devstar, a platform that offers nearshore FTE Mexican software engineers to startups based in US, presented their businesses to a group.
