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.
