Based on the notion that entrepreneurs discover solutions and network over a million cups of coffee, the Kauffman Foundation developed 1 Million Cups - a free program designed to educate, engage, and connect entrepreneurs with their communities. The 1MC culture is supportive, inclusive and welcoming. Founders are encouraged to be open and honest about their business and the challenges they face. Everyone that attends 1MC is there to support each other in their entrepreneurial journey.
Prior to presenting, co-founders, Dimitri Popov and Saurabh Bharadwaj, prepared by incorporating lessons from the Kauffman Founders School “Powerful Presentations” series, featuring Nathan Gold. They engaged in collaborative and honest conversations with like-minded people in our community.
