1 Million Cups: Entrepreneurs @ The School House
Apr 8 @ 9:00 am – 10:00 am

1 Million Cups (1MC) is a chapter of the Kauffman Organization that created a simple way to engage entrepreneurs in communities around the world. Their weekly “caffeinated” events offer local entrepreneurs valuable exposure and feedback on their startups in a supportive environment.

Here’s how it works:

Every Wednesday the program offers one or two entrepreneurs an opportunity to present their startups to a diverse audience of mentors, advisors, investors,  entrepreneurs, the public, you name it! Presenters prepare a six-minute educational presentation and engage in twenty minutes of feedback and questioning after they present. Entrepreneurs gain insight into possible ways they can improve their businesses, gather real-time feedback, connect with a community that cares about their progress and walk away feeling like they have advanced their business. Don’t miss this excellent opportunity to network in Charleston, make new friends, and reconnect with old ones. Coffee is provided each week and all events are free to attend and open to the public. To check out who’s up next to present, visit www.1millioncups.com/charleston.
