What we're about

Each week, the 1MC program offers two local entrepreneurs an opportunity to present their startups to a diverse audience of mentors, advisors, and entrepreneurs. Learn more about 1 Million Cups (http://www.1millioncups.com/About.aspx).

We meet every Wednesday morning from 9:00-10:00am (except we skip the first Wednesday of every month). One entrepreneur gives a 10 minute pitch with 20 minutes Q&A. As a community, we always ask, "How can we help you?" Come join our caffeinated community.

Interesting in presenting? Join us, attend at least one meeting, and let us know!
