1 Million Cups is a free, national program designed to educate, engage, and connect entrepreneurs. Developed by the Kauffman Foundation in 2012, the program is based on the notion that meaningful connections are made over one million cups of coffee. 1 Million Cups is led by more than 500 volunteer organizers in 35+ states, one U.S. territory, and six time zones – and growing every day.
1 Million Cups Fargo is our local chapter of the event and has around 150 community members in attendance each week. Fargo’s 1 Million Cups features men and women who are building their ideas, launching products, and starting companies — with an emphasis on innovative technology. Some events begin with Random Acts of Art, where we highlight the local arts scene through song, tap dance, or mind-blowing yo-yo skills. Join us every Wednesday at the Stage at Island Park (unless different venue is noted), from 9:15 – 10:15 A.M except for the months of August and December. Bring a mug for the java, from 20 Below Coffee!
