1 MILLION CUPS
July 31 @ 9:00 am - 10:00 am
1 Million Cups (1MC) is based on the notion that great ideas are discussed over a million cups of coffee. 1MC is not a pitch platform, nor is it a networking event. It’s simply a chance for presenting entrepreneurs to tap into the knowledge and experience of the local community in a focused and encouraging environment. The Abilene 1 MIllion Cups community meets the last Wednesday of each month at McMurry University Center for Free Enterprise and Entrepreneurship, located in the Walter F. and Virginia Johnson School of Business.
During each event, entrepreneurs have just 20 minutes to present their company or business idea (from newly formed up to 5 years old) to a room full of community members; followed by the next 30 minutes where the audience will ask questions, provide helpful feedback, and share similar experiences or support. Every 1 Million Cups event concludes with a question posed to the entrepreneur: “What can we as a community do to help you?” This cultivates the intention that 1 Million Cups chapters are created by the community for the community.
