1 Million Cups Milwaukee is back

The Milwaukee chapter of 1 Million Cups is set to relaunch its monthly events.

The national program is designed to engage, educate, and connect local entrepreneurs. Founded by the Kauffman Foundation, 1 Million Cups is based on the notion that entrepreneurs network and discover solutions over a million cups of coffee. The free, weekly gathering helps build startup communities on a grassroots level.

Beginning Wednesday, May 3 from 8 a.m. to 9:00 a.m., entrepreneurs, innovators, funders, and other interested community members are invited to attend the event hosted at co-working space Expansive in Wauwatosa.

The program’s model is consistent in each city: the first Wednesday morning of every month, two early-stage startups present their companies to an audience of mentors, advisers, and other entrepreneurs. Each founder presents for six minutes, followed by a 10-minute question-and-answer session with the audience.

The 1 Million Cups in Milwaukee event will feature presentations by Food FiXR, an app that makes finding nontoxic, body optimizing, disease healing foods simple and Podcast Town, a full service, white glove podcast agency dedicated to help others grow their podcast show.

In each 1 Million Cups city, local entrepreneurs drive the program as community organizers. Volunteering for the leadership roles in Milwaukee are Dujuan Cherry, Founder/CEO of AgencyML, Jonathan Kowalske, Component Brewery owner, DJ Bruwer, Community Engagement Coordinator at Radio Milwaukee, and Sydney Tucker, a teacher at Mount Calvary Lutheran.
