1 Million Cups® – May

May 8 @ 9:00 am - 10:00 am


1 Million Cups® – May

Support startups at 1 Million Cups® Naples and hear how an FGCU student created a student housing app, how a Tallahassee entrepreneur helps share experts’ knowledge, and how a Naples Accelerator entrepreneur and author shows startups how to scale their businesses.

Startups get six minutes to present their business, product or service, followed by up to 20 minutes of questions and advice from the audience, which includes the public, SCORE, SBDC, Greater Naples Chamber of Commerce members and entrepreneurs.

The presenters are:

  • Proper Channel, a web application that enables people to easily collaborate on finding the most efficient way to navigate bureaucracy. By documenting paths to success, award-winning Tallahassee entrepreneur William McCluskey hopes Proper Channel will remove barriers to change and level the playing field between those who can afford to hire experts and those who can’t.
  • RoomDig, an app that provides an exclusive marketplace for college and university students to find housing, roommates and social events. Florida Gulf Coast University Institute for Entrepreneurship student Jakub Adamowicz started with FGCU, Florida State University and the University of Florida and continues to expand nationwide.
  • MVP Associates LLC, which helps B2B companies grow by working in three key areas: markets, methods and mindset. Naples Accelerator member and author Bryan Durkin’s startup shows entrepreneurs how to choose markets, build scalable teams to relieve them from doing work that isn’t their core business and to think and act like a successful entrepreneur.

Coffee will be provided by Epiphany Gluten-Free Bakery and paid for by RE1 Advisor LLC, the sponsors.

The Kauffman Foundation developed 1MC® in 2012 as a free nationwide program to educate, engage and inspire entrepreneurs and startups over a free cup of coffee. There are now 183 1MCs nationwide, with 12 in Florida. 1MC Naples is held the second Wednesday of every month, from 9-10 a.m.
