The Cherokee Office of Economic Development has announced the launching of a 1 Million Cups Chapter for Cherokee County. Founded by the Kauffman Foundation, 1 Million Cups is a weekly program based on the notion that entrepreneurs network and discover solutions over a million cups of coffee. This free coffee gathering helps build startup communities on a grassroots level.
I Million Cups Cherokee will kick off on Wednesday, January 17th from 9-10 at the Circuit in Woodstock. The Cherokee Chapter is the 9th chapter for Georgia, and in one of 150 chapters nationwide. Entrepreneurs, innovators, funders, mentors and other interested community members are invited to attend each gathering on the first and third Wednesday from 9 to 10 a.m.
The Cherokee Office of Economic Development, powered by their Fresh Start Cherokee brand, will be the headquarters for the Cherokee chapter. After the first meeting, 1Million Cups Cherokee will go on tour to a different Cherokee city each month. On February 21, the group will meet in Holly Springs; March 21 will be in Canton, and the April 18 meeting will be in Waleska at Reinhardt University. Follow them on Twitter for updates.
