1 Million Cups Cedar Rapids
February 17 @ 8:30 am - 9:30 am
Today’s guest is Mark Salisbury!
Mark has spent his whole career in higher education: as an administrator, researcher, and teacher at Augustana College and the University of Iowa, and as an admissions recruiter and soccer coach at Idaho State University, Central Michigan University, and Missouri University of Science and Technology. He has a PhD in Higher Education from the University of Iowa (Let’s go, Hawkeyes!), and additional degrees from the University of Kansas (Rock Chalk, Jayhawk!), and the University of Minnesota (Ski-U-Mah!).
For 25 years, he’s wondered why we couldn’t make actual college prices transparent for all to see and help students and families compare colleges more effectively. At the same time, he’s wondered if college price transparency might actually help colleges find students more simply and efficiently.
TuitionFit is a labor of love informed by all those years of experience. It’s designed to make life better and less stressful for both sides of the college selection process: help more students go to college for a lower price and help colleges find students more efficiently.
Developed by the Kauffman Foundation, 1MC is based on the notion that entrepreneurs discover solutions and network over a million cups of coffee. Early-stage businesses and established companies facing interesting challenges are welcome to present their companies to a panel of experts 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.
The Cedar Rapids chapter was the sixth in the U.S. and takes place almost every Wednesday. Every event is free, and everyone is welcome and invited to attend!
