1 Million Cups Entrepreneurship Pitch Event

Michigan Tech has partnered with MTEC SmartZone, KEDA and the local entrepreneurial community to host a local chapter of 1 Million Cups (1MC). A free, national program designed to educate, engage and connect entrepreneurs. Developed by the Kauffman Foundation, 1MC is based on the notion that entrepreneurs discover solutions and network over a million cups of coffee.

The inaugural 1MC event for the Copper Country is scheduled for 9 a.m. tomorrow (Jan. 10, 2018) at the Finnish-American Heritage Center in Hancock. Both presenting companies have connections to Michigan Tech and will have 6-7 minutes to present their business ideas, followed by 15-20 minutes to answer questions from the community.
