1 Million Cups



1 Million Cups (1MC) is a national program of the Kauffman Foundation.  It is a simple way to engage
entrepreneurs in communities around the world.  Each week, the 1MC program offers 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 they present. Entrepreneurs gain insight into possible ways they can 
improve their businesses, gather real-time 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.
