Run by entrepreneurs for entrepreneurs – 1 Million Cups VA Beach’s weekly event engages and connects local entrepreneurs. This week, Drew Little co-founder of East Coast Music Conference (ECMC) will pitch at 1MC at Stratford University in Virginia Beach.
ECMC is one of the top music industry festivals. We focus on bridging the gaps between fans, musicians, and industry with intimate shows for fans and first rate seminars for working musicians. For 2018 we had 7300 attendees at 97 shows in 3 days. https://eastcoastmusicconference.com
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. Through the power of volunteers, 1 Million Cups has grown to more than 180 communities.
As a program of the Kauffman Foundation, 1 Million Cups works with entrepreneurs, empowering them with the tools and resources to break down barriers that stand in the way of starting and growing their businesses. Mr. Kauffman believed it was a fundamental right for anyone who had a big idea to be able to bring it to life—and we’re here to fulfill that mission.
