This Week

This week’s presenter is Mandela Washington Fellowship for Young African Leaders. The Mandela Washington Fellowship empowers young people through academic coursework, leadership training, and networking. This is a nation-wide program funded by the U.S. Department of State and consists of three main program tracks: Business, Civic Engagement, and Public Management. For the ninth year, Iowa Entrepreneurship has welcomed 25 Mandela Washington Fellows from Sub-Saharan African countries to the University of Iowa to partake in the 2024 program.

The Mandela Washington Fellowship is a program of the U.S. Department of State with funding provided by the U.S. Government and administered by IREX. The University of Iowa is a sub-grantee of IREX and is implementing a Leadership Institute as a part of the Fellowship.

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., Every event is free, and everyone is welcome and encouraged to attend!

Join us Wednesdays @ 8:30 a.m. at NewBoCo 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!
