1 Million Cups: QRC Holdings, Inc.
July 13, 2022 from 8:45 am to 10:00 amFree
This week, we will hear from Cedar Rapids Bank & Trust (CRBT) and their parent company, QRC Holdings, Inc!
“CRBT is deeply rooted in the spirit and mindset of entrepreneurialism and in many regards, the American Dream. The notion that all people have the right to make their dreams become reality is not only a critical part of American culture, but CRBT culture. With a rapidly growing focus on corporate culture, the quality of the employee and client experience, and organizational brand, we must evolve and leverage Diversity, Equity & Inclusion initiatives and strategies as a value-added and impactful business resource. One of the key traits of community leadership is sharing best practices. We are excited to share some of the ways in which CRBT takes intentional and meaningful actions to lead by example and be just a little bit better every day for ourselves, our clients and our incredible community.”

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!
