Madison soon will be the newest home of a national program to engage, educate and connect local entrepreneurs. 1 Million Cups based on the notion that entrepreneurs network and discover solutions over a million cups of coffee is a free, weekly gathering in which every Wednesday morning, one or two early-stage startups present their companies to an audience of mentors, advisers and other entrepreneurs. Each founder presents for six minutes, followed by a 20-minute question-and-answer session with the audience.
1 Million Cups began in 2012 at the Kauffman Foundation in Kansas City, Mo. More information on upcoming Madison sessions is here.
