1 Million Cups: Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Businesses Panel
November 2 @ 8:30 am - 10:00 am
This week, we will be joined by four Cedar Rapids area business owners who have used the Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Businesses program to position their businesses for growth. We will hear from Josh McNary of McNary Marketing & Design, Sydney Rieckhoff of Almost Famous Popcorn Company, Amy Heinen of Quick Action Accounting, and Wahneta Dimmer of Hands in Harmony. They will introduce their business and share their experiences. Each business owner will also discuss their tips and techniques for the evaluation of growth opportunities, forecasting for strategic decision making, as well as transitioning from tactical work in the business to strategic work on the business.
Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Businesses is an educational program for small business owners across the state to accelerate the growth of their business. More than 200 Iowa business owners have taken advantage of this no-cost program to grow their business, increase revenue, and create jobs for their community.

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 Wednesdays @ 8:30 a.m. at The Olympic Theater South Side (1202 3rd St SE #200, Cedar Rapids, IA 52401)! 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!
