1 Million Cups Ocala

Date: December 13, 2017 Time: 9:30 AM - 10:30 AM
Event Description

The CEP and Power Plant Business Incubator are very excited to announce that a program called 1 Million Cups is coming to Ocala.
1 Million Cups is based on the idea that entrepreneurs network and discover solutions over a million cups of coffee. The program is a free, weekly gathering that helps to build startup communities on a grassroots level.

1 Million Cups is just over 5 years old, and is in 132 communities across the U.S.

Beginning Wednesday, September 20, 2017, entrepreneurs, innovators, funders and other interested community members are invited to attend each Wednesday from 9:30am to 10:30 a.m. at the CEP’s Power Plant Business Incubator – 2nd Floor, located at 405 SE Osceola Ave. Ocala.

The program’s model is consistent in each city: Every Wednesday morning, two early-stage startups present their companies to an audience of mentors, advisers and other entrepreneurs. Each founder presents for six minutes, followed by a 20-minute question-and-answer session with the audience. 

The central question asked each week will be, “What can we, as a community, do to help you get this idea off the ground?”

If you know of someone with a new business idea they’ve been working-on launching (in any industry!), encourage them to apply to present via
