1 Million Cups: Dr. Jennifer Murphy and “The Art of the Question”

April 27, 2022 from 8:30 am to 10:00 am

This Week

This week’s presenter is Dr. Jennifer Murphy! Dr. Murphy is the Director of Innovation at NewBoCo and cohost of the new Iowa Innovation podcast! You and she will explore The Art of the Question and its impact for innovators, entrepreneurs, and leaders.

Dr. Murphy will introduce the elements and applications of critical questions. Then, in groups of 3 or 4, you will play with what you have learned and form “Critical Question Collabs.” You will seek to deepen your understanding of various topics and learn to look beyond “what’s in it for me?”

With this knowledge, you will be able to make your customer discovery more insightful, deepen your idea exploration, strengthen your networking, better refine your messaging and more!

Program schedule

  • 8:30-9:00 – Coffee & Conversation
  • 9:00-9:45 – Official Program
  • 9:45-10:00 – Q&A


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 @ 9 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!

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