theClubhou.se hosts 1 Million Cups to Educate, Connect Local Entrepreneurs!
Robbie King of Belair Donuts is presenting this month. We will also have updates from three alumni of 1 Million Cups Augusta: Jennifer Tinsley of Field Botanicals, Daniel Scheiner of Skyraider Aeronautics, and Jonathan Larry of Upliff. All three have big news for the community!
This free, monthly program developed by the Kauffman Foundation helps build startup communities nationwide. Augusta is one of the newest homes of the national program to engage, educate, and connect local entrepreneurs. 1 Million Cups — based on the notion that entrepreneurs network and discover solutions over a million cups of coffee — is a free monthly gathering that helps to build startup communities on a grassroots level. Entrepreneurs, innovators, funders and other interested community members are invited to attend the first Wednesday of each month from 8 to 9 a.m. at theClubhou.se, located at 1 11th Street (100 Grace Hopper Lane) in downtown Augusta. The program’s model is consistent in each city: One Wednesday a month, two early-stage startups present their companies to an audience of mentors, advisors and other entrepreneurs. Each founder presents for six minutes, followed by a 20-minute question-and-answer session with the audience.
1 Million Cups in Augusta is currently accepting any business less than five years old that wants to present to the audience. Each company will be videotaped and have the opportunity to present at other 1 Million Cups across the country.
