1 Million Cups: Collab Preventative

December 13, 2023 from 8:45 am to 10:00 am

This Week hear from Preventative Collab

Collab Preventative is an initiative blending technology and health in the digital dating landscape. It’s a platform designed to enhance safety and transparency in modern dating. Our approach tackles the increasing challenge of health risks in online interactions, particularly in the dynamic and evolving world of digital dating.

This venture was born from the vision of Enrique Baker, who recognized the need for a more responsible and secure way of connecting in today’s fast-paced online environment. His path from the brainstorm at StartupWeekend IC 2023 to the development at Venture School IC 2023 is a classic tale of ‘if at first the idea seems bizarre, you’re probably onto something interesting.’

Enrique Baker aims to inspire others through his presentation at 1 Million Cups Cedar Rapids. He will share insights into the critical nature of open dialogues about health in the digital age, the journey of nurturing an idea, and the potential of API-driven business models for various entrepreneurial ventures

About 1 Million Cups Cedar Rapids

The Kauffman Foundation developed 1 Million Cups (1MC) on the notion that entrepreneurs discover solutions and network over a million cups of coffee. We welcome early-stage businesses and established companies facing interesting challenges to present their companies. Typically, one or several representatives present before a panel of experts. They seek advice and then engage the audience in a question-and-answer session to encourage collaborative and honest conversations. We also feature expert speakers, founder fireside interviews, and explorations of business failures and the lessons learned!

The Cedar Rapids chapter is the sixth in the U.S., and events take place almost every Wednesday. Every event is free, and everyone is welcome and encouraged to attend!

Join us on Wednesdays @ 8:45 a.m. at the Geonetric Cafe. Each event features a presentation or conversation with a new founder, entrepreneur, business leader, subject matter expert, or creative. Find a list of upcoming events and presenters on our Calendar.

We update events as new information is available, so check the calendar often!
