1 Million Cups (1 MC) Sacramento Weekly Event for Entrepreneurs

A weekly, coffee-fueled event

Every Wednesday morning, 2 founders present their startups to their peers for advice and feedback.

It's not a sales pitch, and it's not an investor pitch. The goal is to have people understand what you do and some of the challenges you have had in building your business.

1 Million Cups Mission: To lower the barrier of access to education, resources and connection for ALL types of new and aspiring entrepreneurs throughout the United States.

Why Present?

You'll be assigned a coach for your presentation. So why not get out of your comfort zone? Share your business idea and connect to an engaged community of fellow entrepreneurs and ecosystem-builders that support your startup journey.

  • Refine your presentation and elevator pitch
  • Join a community to receive support, including coaching from 1MC organizers
  • Continue to present your business -- in another city or after you have made significant changes
  • Receive feedback from a diverse audience
  • Potentially gain exposure to new markets and people
