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 over 140 communities across the U.S.
Everyone in the community is invited to join us 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 is, “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 or which is less than 3 years old (in any industry!), encourage them to apply to present via http://www.1millioncups.com/ocala We also ask that presenters be unique businesses which they themselves have created, and not franchises.
