1 Million Cups™ Peoria - Michael Peifer

1 Million Cups™, a program created by Kauffman Labs for Enterprise Creation to engage, educate and connect entrepreneurs, is a  weekly gathering that is helping to build startup communities over cups of coffee and conversation across the country.

1 Million Cups began in April 2012 in Kansas City, the hometown of its founding organization, the Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation. 

The program is run entirely by local entrepreneurs who serve as community organizers.

Entrepreneurs, innovators and interested community members from Central Illinois and the surrounding region will meet at 9 a.m. each Wednesday at La Ville de Maillet (820 SW Adams) in the Warehouse District.  Parking is along Adams Street and in the lot behind and below Sugar.

"We're extremely pleased to be partnering with the Kauffman Foundation to bring 1 Million Cups to Central Illinois," said Jake Hamann. "We look forward to hosting this exceptional program and inviting entrepreneurs in Central Illinois and across our region to join us."

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
