1 Million Cups VIRTUAL
- The Clubhou.se/ VIRTUAL
- Recurring weekly on Wednesday
This free, weekly program developed by the Kauffman Foundation helps build startup communities nationwide. Augusta is one of the newest homes of the national program to engage, educate, and connect local entrepreneurs. 1 Million Cups — based on the notion that entrepreneurs network and discover solutions over a million cups of coffee — is a free weekly gathering that helps to build startup communities on a grassroots level. Entrepreneurs, innovators, funders and other interested community members are invited to attend each Wednesday from 9-10am at theClubhou.se, located at 1 11th Street (100 Grace Hopper Lane) in downtown Augusta. The program’s model is consistent in each city: Each Wednesday, two early-stage startups present their companies to an audience of mentors, advisors and other entrepreneurs. Each founder presents for six minutes, followed by a 20-minute question-and-answer session with the audience.
