If you want to make an appearance at Kansas City's pre-eminent see-and-be-seen weekly business event, you better wake up early. Every Wednesday morning at 9, the Kauffman Foundation's 1 Million Cups lets area startups pitch their ideas to a room filled with a couple of hundred tech geeks, startup owners and established business folks. And each week, it's a standing-room-only affair. The joy for 1 Million Cups' audience is never knowing what kind of idea they'll hear each week. It might be an app, a medical business, an e-commerce play. It's a crapshoot, but it's always sure to show off the city's bright, active minds. Just tell your boss that if you get shit for showing up late on Wednesdays.
