As it ramps-up economic development, Auburn is launching a Gold Country chapter of “1 Million Cups,” a popular national program meant to foster entrepreneurism.
“Based on the notion that entrepreneurs discover solutions and network over a million cups of coffee, the Kauffman Foundation developed 1 Million Cups – a free program designed to educate, engage, and connect entrepreneurs with their communities,” as the Explore Auburn, CA site observes.
A New York Times article about the national program is HERE.
On Wednesday mornings, one or two early-stage businesses present their companies to their communities. Every event is free and everyone is welcome and invited to attend!
Prior to presenting, the founder prepares by incorporating lessons from the Kauffman Founders School “Powerful Presentations” series, featuring Nathan Gold.
Each founder presents for six minutes, followed by a 20-minute question-and-answer session with the audience.
The Gold Country chapter’s launch is Wednesday, November 1, at 8 a.m. at Pour Choice, 177 Sacramento St. in Old Town Auburn. More information about the local program is HERE.
