1 Million Cups Launches in San Diego

Written by Jody Published in

We are stoked to be a part of the committee that will be hosting 1 Million Cups events every Wednesday beginning September 11, 2013 in San Diego.

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 6 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 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.

We are currently accepting applications for startups to present as well as allowing people to reserve their seats to participate as part of the community/audience. The first San Diego event will be held on September 11, 2013 at 9:00 at Co-Merge (330 A Street).


I encourage you to apply to present or share this information with anyone that you think would like to. We'd love to get as many members of the San Diego community involved as possible - this is a completely free event and we know it will be a great tool for uniting the San Diego community.

If you are not in San Diego - don't worry, there are 1MC events happening any many cities across the nation. Click Here to find a location closer to you.
