right here in our fair Burg! So experience it first hand and as we talk
about our business. Come out and show your support…perhaps wear some of

1 Million Cups (1MC) is a simple way to engage entrepreneurs in
communities around the world. Each week, the 1MC program offers two
local entrepreneurs an opportunity to present their start-ups to a
diverse audience of mentors, advisers, 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 real-time
feedback, and connect with a community that truly cares about their
progress, while walking 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
