1 Million Cups is a free, weekly national program designed to educate, engage, and connect entrepreneurs.
Every Wednesday, one early-stage startup presents their company to a diverse audience of their peers, mentors, educators, and advisors. Then they lay out a particular challenge that the audience helps them and gives feedback on. Come this week, enjoy free coffee, collaboration, networking and participate in the Q&A sessions! Also: If you fit our criteria as an early stage company, come present and get a challenge solved by wicked smart people. For free.
Our May Event is right around the corner! Can’t wait to see everyone there 😃
Next Event: March 13th at UAlbany's Downtown Campus in the Husted Amphitheater. Stay tuned for more updates!

Interesting article in the TU about startups in decline vs. the number of closures. Slightly up in the Capital Region. Two of our friends, Janet Tanguay at Capital Region Chamber and Bill Brigham at NYS Small Business Development Center talk about it. Interesting stats about the Entrepreneur Boot Camp results. Our organizer David Borland was a graduate back in the day, and also was a client of the NYSBDC. Multiple businesses later thanks in part to both of them.
