1 MILLION CUPS (http://www.1millioncups.com/) is a free, nationwide program designed to educate, engage and accelerate early-stage startups. It was founded by the Kauffman Foundation and based on the notion that entrepreneurs can discover solutions and thrive when they collaborate over a million cups of coffee. 1 Million Cups meets at LaunchHouse on the 1st Wednesday of each month from 8:30am to 10am. The event is always free, and begins with casual networking (and coffee!) from 8:30 to 9. At 9am, we'll have 1 or 2 short presentations from local entrepreneurs along with a group Q&A and discussion. The meetup will conclude by 10am. Interested in learning more about 1 Million Cups, applying to be a presenter, or becoming a coffee sponsor?

This is our casual "Excuse to Create" meetup event from 10:00 AM to 3:00 PM. The purpose of this meetup is to give our members time and space to work on or share their projects away from distractions. Want to brainstorm or ask questions of other developers? Want to turn up you headphones and code without family distractions? Maybe look for opportunities to collaborate, pair-program or share your latest prototype? Then hopefully Excuse to Create will give you those opportunities.
It's Happy Hour Time! Stop by LaunchHouse in Highland Heights to have a beer with the Cleveland community of entrepreneurs & small business owners. This week we will be joined by Tom Belcher, TFB Consultants, Ltd Bio: Tom Belcher, north east Ohio entrepreneur and president of TFB Consultants, Ltd loves tasting wine. He is also an engineer with a degree in applied physics. His passion for great tasting wine and combined science background culminated in the launch of WinePrO2TM the world’s first proactive decanter and preservation system TM (November, 2018). The product employs a patent-pending, oxygen infusing process which allows the user to perfectly decant wine & spirts instantly to make them taste their best while also doubling as a preservation system. Tom is also responsible for two previous successful products launches with north east Ohio companies. The first with a startup company in the automotive & steel industry launching a line of film measurement instrumentation, and second with a fortune 500 company launching an absolute positioning system for industrial & mobile applications. Tom notes the commonality in the WinePrO2TM and previous launched products is “no subjectivity, results are measurable and backed with data.” The uniqueness that differentiates the WinePrO2TM from previous launched products? “Definitely the research into Wine & Spirts and making them taste their best!” Tom may be contacted at: TFB Consultants, Ltd 6811 Eastgate Drive Mayfield Village, OH[masked] [masked]
