Entrepreneurially (and I’m not sure if that’s a real word or one I just made up!), Kansas City has it GOIN’ ON right now! Every Wednesday morning, entrepreneurs from across the area gather for 1 Million Cups, sponsored by Kauffman Labs and the Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation. It’s an incredible group of entrepreneurs, advisors and mentors. Participants are encouraged to leave their agendas by the door and ask the question of others — “What can I do to help you grow your business?” The group celebrated it’s first year birthday yesterday. Last year at this time 12 souls gathered to kick off this networking adventure. Yesterday, there were almost 200 in the room! The leadership of 1 Million Cups has done a stellar job in creating an atmosphere of support and encouragement for start-ups of all kinds and even for those businesses who may have been around a while and are ready to take it up a notch.
If you’re an entrepreneur in the Kansas City area, stop in. It’s a place to share your support, get inspired, make great connections and even enjoy a beverage or two (hot or cold)! See you there!!
TODAY’S TIP: Share a beverage and conversation with someone who can help you take your business (or your life!) to the next level. Have a fabulous Thursday!
