Description

This week's presenter:

In honor of Geonetric’s 20th Birthday, we’re going to hear from the namesake for the building where 1 Million Cups Cedar Rapids happens every week. In this presentation, Geonetric leaders -- CEO Linda Barnes and founder Eric Engelmann -- will share where this company started, how it has evolved over the past two decades, how to build an enduring organization, what a empowered employee organization structure looks like, and what it means to have your company in a community hub.




About 1 Million Cups Cedar Rapids

1 Million Cups Cedar Rapids is a free, weekly program that happens nationwide designed to educate, engage, and connect entrepreneurs.

Developed by the Kauffman Foundation, 1MC is based on the notion that entrepreneurs discover solutions and network over a million cups of coffee. Early-stage businesses and established companies facing interesting challenges are welcome to present their companies to a panel of experts for advice, and engage the audience in a question-and-answer session to encourage collaborative and honest conversations. We also feature expert speakers, founder fireside interviews, and exploration of business failures and the shared learning that comes from those failures.

1 Million Cups Cedar Rapids is led by a group of passionate volunteers:

  • Akira Allen
  • Eric Engelmann
  • Laura Gansemer
  • Jessalyn Holdcraft
  • Rina Jensen
  • Julie Lammers
  • Scott Swenson
  • James Welbes
  • Emily Bettridge
  • James Patrick
