1 Million Cups - Virginia Beach

1 Million Cups is a free, weekly 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 1 Million Cups educational experience is designed for entrepreneurs who are leading companies through the early
stages of a new venture. Every Wednesday morning, one or two early-stage startups present their companies to a
diverse audience of their peers, mentors, educators, and advisors. Each founder presents for six minutes, followed by a
20-minute question-and-answer session with the audience. Afterward, each startup receives feedback via an audience
survey and from the local organizers in their city. The culture surrounding 1 Million Cups is that of a supportive, neutral
space welcoming entrepreneurs to be open and honest about their businesses and the challenges they face.
