Do you love Shark Tank? Then come to 1 Million Cups® Naples, where you can listen to entrepreneurs, advise them and help their startups!
1 Million Cups ® Naples is held from 9-10 a.m. the second Wednesday of each month at the Naples Accelerator, 3510 Kraft Road, Ste. 200, Naples. 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, as well as SCORE, SBDC, Greater Naples Chamber of Commerce members, entrepreneurs and business professionals.
The presenters, so far, are:
Shop Best Dressed, an FGCU School of Entrepreneurship startup that sends customers a box, which includes an outfit or five hand-selected separate pieces that they pick for you based on your proprietary style quiz. You can rent your box for a month, purchase what you love and send back what you don’t.
Still waiting for another applicant or two!
Organic coffee will be provided by Guadalupe Roastery and the Florida Culinary Accelerator @ Immokalee and paid for by Bank of America. (Do you want to be a sponsor? It’s only $45 to provide the coffee, cups, napkins, stirrers, etc., as well as the setup and take down. Email Aisling.Swift@colliercountyFL.gov )
The Kauffman Foundation developed 1MC® in 2012 as a free nationwide program to educate, engage and inspire entrepreneurs and startups over a cup of coffee. There are now 183 1MCs nationwide, with 12 in Florida.
