1 Million Cups Fairfax at MakeOffices Tysons

Posted March 15, 2018 by Manu Aggarwal

MakeOffices at Tysons is thrilled to host 1 Million Cups Fairfax County! This national initiative founded by the Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation is based on the idea that entrepreneurs can help support each other, discover solutions, and network with each other over a million cups of coffee. The program is completely free, and is designed to educate, engage, and connect entrepreneurs within their communities. There are about 160 chapters across the United States.

Our Tysons Corner coworking space was honored to host the inaugural 1 Million Cups Fairfax County event that featured beer samples, roses, and coffee. The first presenter was Eric Zarkovich of Good River Beer who talked about the challenges of expanding his business in Northern Virginia, having started out of Denver, Colorado. Some suggestions included local radio ads and introductions to local communities that could help fulfill his mission of donating a percentage of his sales to local river conservation efforts.

Rod Loges, President and CEO of One Degree Capital, and Donnel Johns, President and CEO of Avision Worldwide Consulting, founded the Fairfax County chapter of 1 Million Cups. Often times, the journey of an entrepreneur can be isolating, as it can be difficult to find others that can relate to their challenges. They see the value in 1 Million Cups to help entrepreneurs get the support they need to grow their businesses.

The ability to connect entrepreneurs and empower them through workspaces and community is what MakeOffices Tysons is all about. “We immediately saw the value to our community when we discussed hosting 1 Million Cups. MakeOffices is thrilled to open up our coworking space to support local entrepreneurs in this manner.”

1 Million Cups holds weekly meetings at MakeOffices Tysons. Meetings are open to the public to all entrepreneurs and innovators in the Fairfax area. For more information, please visit 1 Million Cups Fairfax.

We look forward to seeing you at the next meeting.
