1 Million Cups: Little Miss Finance
January 11 @ 8:30 am - 10:00 am
Join us to hear from Little Miss Finance! Little Miss Finance (LMF) is a financial education company with a mission to help individuals build wealth by translating the confusing and overwhelming world of personal finance. While working in corporate America, Malia Gudenkauf started LMF as a blog in 2019 to share with others the concepts she was learning, putting into practice, and having success with. Malia unintentionally built a business as several young people, especially women, came forward and said “help me!”
Malia’s most significant barrier at this time is lacking the network in her community to help her continue to grow. She focuses on employee workshops, but without business owners or inside advocates to help her get her foot in the door at these businesses, she feels a bit stuck.

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!
