1 Million Cups, Kauffman Labs

The idea is simple: Bring Kansas City's entrepreneurs together for a cup of coffee and get them talking. Each Wednesday at 9 a.m., builders, makers and doers gather for an open forum at Kauffman Labs. Two different startups get six minutes each to explain their concepts and then 20 minutes each to answer questions from a roomful of entrepreneurs, mentors, advisers and gawkers. Kauffman's Nate Olson and Cameron Cushman host the names that could someday be household-recognizable: AgLocal, RareWire and many more. "The Kauffman Foundation's Entrepreneurship Team developed 1 Million Cups as a way to engage Kansas City's entrepreneurs on a weekly basis, educate the community about the great startups in Kansas City, and to accelerate the growth of these companies by doing so while building a dynamic and diverse entrepreneurial community," Olson says. "As a team, I think we sensed an opportunity to fill a gap in the Kansas City startup community through weekly educational programming." Listen in and you might just hear an opportunity to help someone realize his or her dream. And if you can't get to Kauffman Labs, you can always watch the livestream.
