It’s not a sales pitch, and it’s not an investor pitch. The goal is to have people understand what you do and some of the challenges you have had in building your business.
Opportunity to refine your presentation and elevator pitch
A network for support, including coaching from 1 Million Cups organizers
Access to online training programs designed to help you create a powerful presentation and master the Q&A
Opportunity to present and again and again—after you made significant changes, or in another city
A diverse audience to engage with and the opportunity for exposure to new markets and people
The potential to receive local, regional or national media coverage on your startup
Companies that are less than than five years old and open to community engagement can apply to present at 1MC. All industries welcome. Applications take less than 30 minutes. Once submitted, your application will be reviewed. The community organizers will get back to you with any follow-up questions, and you’ll work together to schedule a presentation date. Approval is based on local organizer discretion.
You’ll have six minutes to tell your community who you are, what you’re doing and why you’re doing it. Watch the Kauffman Founder’s School Powerful Presentation series to find inspiration, or watch past presentations.
After your presentation, there will be a 20-minute Q&A session that will give you the opportunity to connect with your audience, culminating to the million-dollar question: “What can we as a community do to help you?”
