@ScaleUp WNC provides intensive growth strategy development and implementation assistance to two cohorts of 15 small businesses annually. With now over 90 alumni companies, ScaleUp WNC is supporting a diverse and distinguished group of entrepreneurs that will drive innovation and economic development across the WNC region. With the 2019 application window quickly closing, 1 Million Cups Asheville is hosting a panel of graduates to learn more about how they successfully built their growth plan, pitched to investors, and navigated their journey to scale.
Moderated by Emily Breedlove, the panel will consist of Adam Charnack (Hi-Wire Brewing), Murphy Funkhouser Capps (Kudzu Brands), and Anthony Thomas (@UpStaffing Personnel), and Matt Raker (Mountain BizWorks).
#1MCAVL was named Resource Program of 2018 for by Venture Asheville!
1 Million Cups Asheville is our city's longest running startup event!
Roughly 200 local startups have taken the stage over the past four years to share their stories, triumphs, and challenges in front of a highly engaged and supportive audience. Time and again, the founders behind these companies cite the connections, feedback, and advice received as instrumental in their success.
"Based on the notion that entrepreneurs discover solutions and network over a million cups of coffee, the Kauffman Foundation developed 1 Million Cups - a free program designed to educate, engage, and connect entrepreneurs with their communities."
