JOB OF THE WEEK
CONNECT AT 1 MILLION CUPS OF COFFEE
Every Wednesday morning Asheville’s startup community gathers downtown for 1 Million Cups of Coffee (1MC). Each week 1 to 2 startup founders pitch their business to an audience of like-minded entrepreneurs, investors, professionals, and supporters of Asheville’s growing startup scene.
1MC is free and open to the public. Plus, there’s free coffee. Learn more.
