1 Million Cups (Bentonville)

Wednesday Mornings @ 8:00 a.m. - 9:15 a.m.

Cost: Free

Avg. Attendance 15 - 25

This event is geared towards the startup community, so it brings in a much different crowd than most 'morning coffee' events. Each week, one or two startup founders come by The Exchange in Bentonville and give a brief presentation of their business (and how the community can help 'em out), and then a wide-ranging conversation ensues covering everything from overcoming obstacles to hiring considerations to finance, and more. 1 Million Cups is a great spot to learn about what's 'next' in the Northwest Arkansas business community while making some great connections at the same time.
