About this Event

1 MILLION CUPS, founded by the Kauffman Foundation, is a free, nationwide program designed to educate, engage and accelerate early-stage startups. 1MC believes in the notion that entrepreneurs can discover solutions and thrive when they collaborate over a million cups of coffee. Drop in on our community of innovators and entrepreneurship enthusiasts to connect and support Philadelphia's local startups.

At each event you will hear the stories of two incredible founders and provide live feedback to the presenters.

Philly Startup Leaders is excited to be the lead organizer for the Philadelphia Chapter of 1 Million Cups. With support from the organizing committee: representatives from Startup PHL, Drexel University, PromptWorks, Comcast, La Colombe, Switchboard Live and Cooley LLC. each month, Philadelphia’s startup ecosystem will convene to provide real-time and genuine feedback to the emerging entrepreneurs who need it most.

***************************************************************************************************************

Why Philly Startup Leaders? PSL is considered the entry point for entrepreneurs or individuals looking to startup. We help people navigate the startup ecosystem, refer them to events and programs (our own and others), and introduce them to experienced founders. We build the PSL network through emails, phone calls, PSL slack channels, the PSL Talk google group, and coffee meetings. Lots and lots of coffee meetings. What we do every day to promote and catalyze entrepreneurship in Philadelphia naturally aligns with 1MC.

The goal of 1MC is not just to add another event to your calendar, but to foster a supportive, consistent, learning community of entrepreneurs and the people that support them. Whether you are an experienced founder, a service provider, an investor, a government official, a university representative or a member of the media, these new entrepreneurs need your support and feedback.

As the lead organizer for 1MC Philadelphia moving forward, PSL hopes to magnify the entry point into the startup ecosystem, and along with our partners, offer an in-person welcome to new entrepreneurs seeking the ever-growing and thriving Philly startup community. Stay tuned for our next 1MC event by following us on Twitter (@1MillionCupsPHL)and visiting the 1MC Philadelphia website.

See you soon!
