1 Million Cups: You Academy Fall 2021 Cohort
January 26 @ 8:30 am - 10:00 am
This week’s presenters are the You Academy Cohort of fall 2021!
Now that we’ve learned about the You Academy, let’s get to know the first cohort! These women have been established in their businesses, have revenue, and wanted to go beyond what they have been doing — with one exception. Our first presenter will be author Amanda Rose. She joined the Academy to build her tea business and left the Academy with a release date for her children’s book instead!
- Amber Henline with Salveo
- Sheri Zevenbergen with The Dash Mindset
- Lindsay Lange with State Farm
- Jaimie Johnson with Finding Aurora
These women will all share their businesses and the impact the You Academy had.
- 8:30-9:00 – Coffee & Conversation
- 9:00-9:45 – Official Program
- 9:45-10:00 – Q&A
About 1 Million Cups Cedar Rapids
Developed by the Kauffman Foundation, 1 Million Cups (1MC) is based on the notion that entrepreneurs discover solutions and network over a million cups of coffee. Early-stage businesses and established companies facing interesting challenges are welcome to present their companies to a panel of experts for advice and engage the audience in a question-and-answer session to encourage collaborative and honest conversations. We also feature expert speakers, founder fireside interviews, and exploration of business failures and the shared learning that comes from those failures.
The Cedar Rapids chapter was the sixth in the U.S. and takes place almost every Wednesday. Every event is free, and everyone is welcome and invited to attend!
Join us Wednesdays @ 9 a.m. at The Olympic Theater South Side (1202 3rd St SE #200, Cedar Rapids, IA 52401)! Each event will involve a presentation or conversation with a new founder, entrepreneur, business leader, subject matter expert, or creative. A list of upcoming events and presenters can be found on our Events Calendar.
Check our calendar often! The process to find and select presenters is an ongoing one, so events will be updated as new information is available.
