The Enterprise Center is proud to serve as a partner, along with Co.Lab and volunteers, for Chattanooga’s chapter of 1 Million Cups
This weekly meeting of entrepreneurs gathers at UTC’s Center for Innovation and Entrepreneurship each Wednesday morning. The meetings, which are open for anyone to join, include a presentation from a local entrepreneur followed by time to network. They are made possible by volunteers and sponsors, including Tennessee Valley Federal Credit Union and Goodman Coffee.
Supported by The Kauffman Foundation
Based on the notion that entrepreneurs discover solutions and engage with their communities over a million cups of coffee, the Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation developed 1 Million Cups in 2012—a free program designed to educate, engage and inspire entrepreneurs around the country. Chattanooga’s chapter is one of more than 160 1 Million Cups communities across the country.
“While most people associate 1MC with for-profit startups, it was great for us to get feedback and perspectives from a diverse audience on the programs that our nonprofit is working on starting, pivoting, and scaling. I highly recommend it to any nonprofit that wants to be more innovative and nimble.”
