1 Million Cups

1 Million Cups is a dynamic way to engage entrepreneurs in the community. Each week, the 1MC program offers two local entrepreneurs an opportunity to present their startups to a diverse audience of mentors, advisers, and entrepreneurs. Developed and supported by the Kauffman Foundation.

Presenters prepare a six-minute educational presentation and engage in twenty minutes of feedback and questioning after they present.

Entrepreneurs gain insight into possible ways they can improve their businesses, gather real-time feedback, connect with a community that cares about their progress, and walk away feeling like they have advanced their business.

1MC is a FREE event located in the Twin Cities and includes a location in St. Paul at the James J. Hill Center AND in Minneapolis at Impact Hub. These two collaborating locations alternate every other week. Join us at the Hill every other Wednesday from 9AM to 10AM for this FREE event. Visit the event calendar for dates & updated summer schedule.  Weekly updates can be viewed at 1millioncups.com/stpaul.
