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 November 1st, 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 i2E. This company provides business advisory services and investment funding through assisting entrepreneurs in launching innovation and creating businesses with reach beyond the local and regional community. They also provide strategic advice to determine the best path forward for new companies and innovation along with much more! Attend the next 1MC event to learn more!
Our second presenter will be AmbreHealth, a healthcare technology company using human health data to identify patterns associated with disease and therapeutic device performance. Early identification of health disorders, such as cardiovascular issues, provides the best chance for successful treatment. Early management and treatment of patient health in these situations results in a dramatic decrease in overall healthcare costs, for the patient and insurer.
