@KauffmanLabs weekly educational program. 2 startups/wk, 6 min presentation, 20 min Q&A #1MCCHI. Wed 9-10am @ Next Door Cafe


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 andĀ 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.

The program takes place every Wednesday morning from 9:00-10:00am in locations all around the country. Visit ourĀ “Find an Event” page for a list of locations. Each city runs the program semi-autonomously, and gather in coffee shops, co-working spaces, and even TV stations.
