1 Million Cups was developed by the Kauffman Foundation to be a free, weekly national program designed to educate, engage, and connect entrepreneurs. In cities across the nation, entrepreneurs meet on Wednesday mornings over coffee to learn how to grow their ventures.
In Fort Wayne, we meet at Sweetwater Sound at the Crescendo Cafe from 9:00 am to 10 am each Wednesday morning except for holiday weeks.
An entrepreneur presents their business for 6 minutes and answers questions from the audience for 20 minutes. During the second half hour, we openly discuss an educational topic important to all entrepreneurs or an issue specific to Northeast Indiana small businesses. The objective is for all, presenter included, to leave each event with new valuable knowledge.
