We all know people and systems influence one another. Right?
Well, you do now!
And Dr. Jennifer Murphy is going to share her first round of research on this topic this morning! For her doctoral program, Dr. Murphy studied the co-evolution of women entrepreneurs and the Eastern Iowa Entrepreneurial Ecosystem. As a bonus for attendees, she will launch the second round of research from the 1MC stage!
Learn how this kind of research is formed, results are analyzed and how you or someone you love could become part of this research to further understand the dynamics in our ecosystem.

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!
