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!
