Join us for our official Cedar Valley 1 Million Cups kick off event. This event is free and open to the public.
1 Million Cups (1MC) is a simple way to engage entrepreneurs in communities around the world. Each week, the 1MC program offers two local entrepreneurs an opportunity to present their startups to a diverse audience of mentors, advisors and entrepreneurs. Presenters prepare a six-minute educational presentation and engage in 20 minutes of feedback and questioning after the presentation. 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.
There will also be a soft launch the mornings of Nov. 5 and Nov. 12 at 9 a.m.
Dr. Amit Sood, professor of medicine at Mayo Clinic, will present a lecture and workshop "Live Stronger Live Happier: A Scientific Approach."

This program has been tested in dozens of clinical trials and offered to thousands of patients and learners in the past six years.
