Are you hooked on Shark Tank, The Profit or Entrepreneur Elevator Pitch?
Watch Florida entrepreneurs give their six-minute presentations live at 1 Million Cups® Naples, where the audience gets 20 minutes to ask the startup founders questions and provide advice.
Kansas City-based Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation developed 1MC in 2012 as a free nationwide program to educate, engage and inspire entrepreneurs over a free cup of coffee. There are now 183 1MCs nationwide, with 12 in Florida. In Naples, it’s held the second Wednesday of every month, from 9-10 a.m. at the Naples Accelerator.
The 1MC presenters for March will be:
• Infinite Pouches, an organic, herbal supplement designed to reduce stress and anxiety. Entrepreneur Kyle Pumariega, an FGCU Institute of Entrepreneurship grad, wants to change the face of mental health by providing alternatives to addictive prescription medication. His oral supplement is fast-acting because it’s absorbed through the tissue in your gums and goes directly into the bloodstream.
• The Cinch It, a fashion accessory invented by entrepreneur Shelly Pryor Aristizabal of Naples. Cinch It not only makes you and your clothing look slimmer, but it can change the look through attractive ruching and gathering. Cinch It is durable, made of medical-grade silicone and comes in a single- or three-pack.
This month’s coffee will be provided by the new Bean To Cup Coffee Lounge on Bayshore Drive in East Naples and paid for by Naples Accelerator member TheNaplesCard, a prepaid gift card app for local retailers, restaurants and businesses.
