We are excited to announce that this week the Co-Founder of 1 Million Cups, Nate Olson will be joining us this week in Tulsa. 1 Million Cups started in Kansas City and has now spread to 32 cities across the US.
The vision of 1 Million Cups (1MC) is that it is simple way to engage entrepreneurs in communities around the world. Each week, the 1MC program offers 2 local entrepreneurs an opportunity to present their startups to a diverse audience of mentors, advisors, and entrepreneurs. Presenters prepare a 6 minute educational presentation and engage in 20 minutes of feedback and questioning after they present. Entrepreneurs gain insight into possible ways they can improve their businesses, gather realtime feedback, connect with a community that truly cares about their progress, and walk away feeling like they have advanced their business. The audience also learns a great deal from the presentations. Whether this is through passively listening or deeply engaging with the entrepreneurs, there is much to learn every week from these dynamic and diverse communities.
Tulsa has been a great participator in this movement with 29 companies who have presented so far.
Join us each Wednesday at Foolish Things Coffee at 9am in Tulsa.
