Event description

Description

1 Million Cups is returning to Fort Bragg, North Carolina.

Because connections are made over coffee.

The format is simple: the community gathers on Wednesday morning to hear several 6-minute presentations from local startups, then answers the question: What can our community do for your startup?

This isn't an ordinary 1MC session. We are showcasing service members, veterans, and military spouses.

Have a business? Starting a business? Need help? We want you to present. Apply here.

Have advice to share? You're at the right place to register.

This event is a joint project between 1 Million Cups Robeson County, the USO of North Carolina, The Thomas Center for Entrepreneurship, and American Dream U.
