1 Million Cups: Iowa Innovation Podcast Live!

August 3, 2022 from 8:45 am to 10:00 am

1 Million Cups Cedar Rapids: Live episode of Iowa Innovation Podcast with Rob Merritt. Every Wednesday at 9AM at the Olympic South Side Theater

This Week

After a successful debut season, NewBoCo’s Iowa Innovation Podcast is kicking off Season 2 in style — with a live interview at 1 Million Cups! Iowa Innovation interviews a new guest each week to hear stories from professionals in business, education, and the arts who have found new and creative ways to get things done.

On Wednesday, NewBoCo’s Rob Merritt and Mike Heaton will chat with guest Kaylee Williams. Kaylee is an entrepreneur and business strategist for early-stage startup companies who currently serves as the Investment Director for the Iowa Venture Capital Co-Investment Fund (IVCCF), and is the former President of VolunteerLocal, a volunteer management software company. Williams graduated from the University of Iowa in 2012 and is the recipient of the 2022 Young Alumni Entrepreneurial Leadership Award from the University of Iowa.

We are excited to have the conversation recorded live by Cedar Rapids’ own LAS Media Group!

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 @ 8:45 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!
