Learn, Share, and Grow with Your Community
1 Million Cups Cedar Rapids will empower you to support your community’s entrepreneurs, give you the opportunity to provide helpful advice or critical feedback, make new connections or sustain long-running ones, or even find a new career opportunity! We encourage early-stage businesses and established companies facing interesting challenges to present their companies to the community for advice and engage the audience in a question-and-answer session to encourage collaborative and honest conversations. We also feature expert speakers, founder fireside interviews, and exploration of business failures and the shared learning that comes from those failures.

Pitch and Business Coach
While NewBoCo is known for entrepreneurship, we’d like to introduce you to a different type of idea creator: an Intrapreneur. Intrapreneurs embody an innovative mindset and entrepreneurial spirit while working inside an established company to drive meaningful change.
