This Week

Join us to hear from Green Mason! Green Mason is a ready-to-eat mason jar salad company that provides convenient healthy eating to the residents of Des Moines. Their  mission is “to help busy people feel better.”

They offer 7 variations of 32-ounce salads, including a new line of Mini Mason 16-ounce salads for kids (kid developed, tested, and approved). Sustainability is important at Green Mason and the company’s Go Green program promotes the indefinite reuse of the mason jars when returned. They hope to get these deliciously low-calorie salads into the hands of anyone looking to incorporate greens into their diet without the hassle and cost.

Green Mason’s current business barrier is scaling and identifying different options for growth.

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!
