Claremore, Oklahoma, launched 1 Million Cups in February of this year– a national program to engage, educate and connect local entrepreneurs. 1 Million Cups — based on the notion that entrepreneurs network and discover solutions over a million cups of coffee — is a free gathering that helps to build startup communities on a grassroots level.
The next presentations will take place on August 2nd, 2017. Entrepreneurs, innovators, funders and other interested community members are invited to attend the next presentations from 8:30am to 9:30 a.m. at She Brews Coffee House, located at 414 W Will Rogers Blvd in beautiful Downtown Claremore. 1 Million cups Claremore welcomes presenters from surrounding areas!
The program’s model is consistent in each city: At each event two early-stage startups present their companies to an audience of mentors, advisers and other entrepreneurs. Each founder presents for six minutes, followed by a 20-minute question-and-answer session with the audience.
This month’s presenter is The Oklahoma Academy’s Membership Vice President, Michael Gordon, Community Affairs Manager. ~Northeastern Oklahoma Public Service Company of Oklahoma would like to hear from you! This is an opportunity to voice your thoughts on the barriers that prevent Oklahoma from having decent voter engagement. The Oklahoma Academy will utilize the information gained from you to help form a non-partisan agenda that will be provided to state leaders and elected officials as a voice for Oklahoma citizens. Please share the invitation with others who may be interested.
