About

1 Million Cups (1MC) is a simple way to engage entrepreneurs in communities around the world. Each week, the 1MC program offers one local entrepreneurs an opportunity to present their startups to a diverse audience of mentors, advisors, and entrepreneurs. Presenters prepare a 6 minute educational presentation and engage in 20 minutes of feedback and questioning after they present. Entrepreneurs gain insight into possible ways they can improve their businesses, gather realtime feedback, connect with a community that truly cares about their progress, and walk away feeling like they have advanced their business. 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 communities. This entire program is run by entrepreneurs or as we like to call them Community Organizers. Without the community leaders from each city, this program would not be sustainable. These Community Organizers are given this title because they are true entrepreneurs out in their communities that are volunteering to aid other startups and to further the entrepreneurial ecosystem within their community.
