1 Million Cups: Leadership for Five Seasons Youth Program
February 1 from 8:30 am to 10:00 am
Today, join us and the 35(!!) members of Cedar Rapids Metro Economic Alliance’s Leadership for Five Seasons Youth Program.
These 35 high school students are participating in the Corridor’s premier leadership program. Through 8 days of in-depth learning from August through March, the program has introduced these select students to “community needs, opportunities, problems, and resources” and facilitated their engagement with “community leaders, decision makers and each other.”
Prior to the presentation, the students will spend time with David Tominsky, Chief Relationship Officer at NewBoCo, growing and cultivating new business ideas and solutions to community problems. Then, they’ll be sharing these inspired ideas with the 1 Million Cups community to get feedback on the feasibility and effectiveness of their ideas!
Come ready to listen, ask questions, or offer input!
- 8:30–9:00 – Coffee & Conversation
- 9:00–9:45 – Official Program
- 9:45–10:00 – Q&A

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!
