Bring a friend and join us for the 1 Million Cups 2022 Games!

Join us for this special 1 Million Cups where YOU get to leverage your best ideas for the 1 Million Cups’ of the future.

We are setting up a series of innovation games to allow those ideas to merge with others, shine as winners, or perhaps . . . go out in a blaze of glory. Either way, you are sure to pick up some engaging ways of working that you can take back to your business! 2022 is a blank slate and we want YOUR thoughts to help shape OUR community.

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.

With Linn County currently at a high transmission level for COVID19, masks are recommended for 1 Million Cups this week (August 11th), per CDC and Linn County Health recommendations.
