Free, weekly program developed by the Kauffman Foundation helps build startup communities nationwide
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 October 4th, 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.
Our first presenter this month is Levi Green with IFLY 107 Drone Photography. IFLY is a Drone Photography Company that does a range of different projects. From taking aerial shots for Homeowners, Companies, Real Estate Agents and even Events to doing Brand Marketing Photography & Video.
Our second presenter is Tom Yoakum with ISEEYOU360. ISEEYOU360 is a start up technology company specializing in rearview head mount displays. With multiple universal applications. Seeking military /security/ industrial and also a wide range of civilian market uses. Including bicycle, motorcycle etc.
