Entrepreneurship Spotlight: 1 Million Cups Fort Wayne

Do you remember Start Fort Wayne? We covered this initiative earlier this year (see article), and some exciting changes have happened since then for this organization with a mission of supporting and strengthening the entrepreneurial community right here in our area. It has barely been a week since Start Fort Wayne publicly announced its new status as a non-profit organization to the community (!!!), and it’s already starting a buzz in the entrepreneurial community by working to build relationships within the entrepreneurship ecosystem here in northeast Indiana. Up first is 1 Million Cups Fort Wayne, presented by Start Fort Wayne with The Northeast Indiana Regional Partnership, at 9 a.m. this Wednesday at the Crescendo Café at the Sweetwater campus (see map). “1 Million Cups will bring our entrepreneur community together to solve the business problems that entrepreneurs face every day,” said Dave Sanders of Start Fort Wayne, in a prepared statement from the Northeast Indiana Regional Partnership. According to the 1MC website, this program, developed nationally by the Kauffman Foundation, “is based on the notion that entrepreneurs discover solutions and network over a million cups of coffee.” Each event will feature a short presentation by a local entrepreneur followed by a discussion with the audience. This week’s event will feature Brendon Maxwell, owner of Utopian Coffee. Upcoming presenters include: November 11 – Jeremy Diller, owner of Scenario 77 November 18 – Jennifer Ford, owner of Jennifer Ford Art December 2 – Bo Gonzalez, owner of Bravas. 1 Million Cups Fort Wayne is sponsored by Sweetwater and Utopian Coffee.
