Description

This week's presenter:

Created by The Gazette, Iowa Ideas is a nonpartisan, statewide learning experience designed to explore the key questions and big ideas that will shape the future of Iowa. The award-winning, day and a half long conference explores and discusses issues that are currently facing Iowa citizens, corporations and governing bodies. Iowa Ideas wants to diversify its audience, so the team is looking for feedback and strategies on how to attract new audiences to the conference. Iowa Ideas has recently launched a scholarship program, received approval for the SHRM professional development credits and has created advisory councils for every track. The goal throughout 2019 is to encourage individuals to get involved and work with conference creators so the October event is truly a collaborative, inclusive experience.

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
