This presentation of Think Tank was sponsored by Grant Gingerich, State Farm Agent.
1 Million Cups is a free national program designed to educate, engage, and connect entrepreneurs. The program provides a supportive, neutral space and can be found in 100+ communities across the country.
Claremore launched their program in November 2016, with meetings held the first Wednesday of each month at SheBrews downtown from 8:30 - 9:30 a.m. The meetings feature one to two startups, each giving a six minute presentation, followed by twenty minutes of interactive questions from the audience. The final question of the session is always, "What can we, as a community, do to help you?"
Claremore has featured a number of industries and businesses including: building products, photography, jewelry, cabinetry, marketing, social networking website development, and trailer innovation in addition to a locally owned salon and a chiropractic clinic.
360Favs creator, Dakota Green, presented at 1 Million Cups in April. He contributed valuable ideas that have helped further develop his social networking site from those in attendance.
