1 Million Cups (1MC) is a national program of the Kauffman Foundation, the leading private foundation for Entrepreneurship. It is a simple way to engage entrepreneurs in communities around the world. Each week, the 1MC program offers local entrepreneurs an opportunity to present their startups to a diverse audience of mentors, advisors, and entrepreneurs. Presenters prepare a short educational presentation, and then receive approximately 20 minutes of feedback and questioning after they present. Entrepreneurs gain insight into potential ways that they can improve their business, gather real-time feedback, and connected within a community of other founders. The audience also learns a great deal from the presentations. Whether this is through passively listening or deeply engaging with the entrepreneurs, there is much to learn every week from these dynamic and diverse entrepreneurs.
