One Million Cups @ CPCC Central Campus Hall Building Room 215
Dec 5 @ 8:30 am – 10:00 am

1 Million Cups Charlotte is a vibrant community that meets on the 1st Wednesday of each month to improve their companies, increase visibility and gain feedback.

About 1 Million Cups

Based on the notion that entrepreneurs discover solutions and engage with their communities over a million cups of coffee, the Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation developed 1 Million Cups in 2012—a free program designed to educate, engage and inspire entrepreneurs around the country. Through the power of volunteers, 1 Million Cups has grown to more than 180 communities.

As a program of the Kauffman Foundation, 1 Million Cups works with entrepreneurs, empowering them with the tools and resources to break down barriers that stand in the way of starting and growing their businesses. Mr. Kauffman believed it was a fundamental right for anyone who had a big idea to be able to bring it to life—and we’re here to fulfill that mission.
