1 Million Cups gives young companies an opportunity to engage in collaborative and honest conversations with like-minded people in the community. On Wednesday mornings at over 100 locations around the US, one or two small businesses present their companies to their communities. Each founder presents for about six minutes, followed by a 20-minute question-and-answer session with the audience.
The 1MC culture is supportive, inclusive and welcoming. You are encouraged to be open and honest about your business and the challenges you face. Everyone that attends 1MC is there to support each other in their entrepreneurial journey.
There is no cost to present, no cost to join. Thank our sponsors!

This course is one of the finest on the Eastern Seaboard — is nothing short of spectacular. This event has been Loudoun County’s Premier business golf tournament for three decades.
The Loudoun Chamber Golf Tour is back for Round 7! This casual, networking tournament pairs you and a partner against a field of over 30 two-man teams in a progressive four month tournament.
Designed with the busy professional in mind, each event consists of a 9 hole round after work, followed by a short networking reception to get you home in time to put the kids to bed.
The team with the lowest cumulative score after four events is the 2018 Loudoun Chamber Golf Tour Champion.
