From behind, 1 Million Cups crowd members applaud a presenter

This Week

In the U.S. alone, 61 million adults (1 in 4) have some type of disability. Yet, it is estimated that 70% of websites, ranging from top ecommerce sites to presidential campaign sites, have critical accessibility gaps. Join us this week to hear from NewBoCo’s Stacey Milder on the benefits and approaches to website accessibility. Her presentation will aim to help close that accessibility gap, centering around what web accessibility is, why it’s necessary and profitable even for the smallest of startups, and insight into how we all can take steps to improve it.

Stacey MilderStacey Milder is a sign language interpreter, software developer, and deaf community advocate. With NewBoCo, she has worked extensively with the team on a project with a nationally-recognized client in order to create a more web accessible web experience for their users. She is passionate about creating a web experience that is accommodating and equitable for all people, regardless of their ability type.

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!
