Join us on Wednesday, August 14 at 9 a.m. at Garden Villa Cafe to learn Matt York's six steps for combining philanthropy and social entrepreneurship into a force for good.

Video is everywhere. In the developed world, it’s one of the most ubiquitous mediums for spreading information, for everything from social media ads to personal vlogs and online schooling. Yet for the world’s poorest billion, this incredible technology is all but non-existent. Matt York of humanitarian film charity One Mobile Projector Per Trainer (OMPT) is on a mission to change that.

As the founder of Videomaker, Matt York has over thirty years in the video industry and has spent the last decade in pursuit of bringing video technology to the 70 poorest countries around the world. He founded OMPT in 2008 as an organization aimed at delivering life-changing knowledge and education to remote villages in developing countries.

Combining impressive business acumen with a passion to make a difference, Matt walks the walk as an avid philanthroprenuer in the Chico community.

1 Million Cups is a weekly event that brings together entrepreneurs and the Chico community over coffee and conversations. It is FREE and open to the public.

Get there early so you can grab some delicious breakfast goodies from our generous friends and one of our sponsors, Garden Villa. They are the BEST!

**This is a recurring weekly event. The presenter will be updated week of presentation.**
