The personalized insider newsletter for all things startup in Sacramento.
What do seven of the eight startups that made the semifinals for the 2021 Sacramento Kings Capitalize Pitch Contest have in common? They’ve all presented at 1 Million Cups Sacramento! Congrats to the 1MC Sac Alumni who made the semifinalist cut! Acorn.Finance, EV Life, Fanalyze, FloraPulse, Foodom, Humaxa, and Remember.us. One of them may win $10,000! By next week, we’ll know who the Final Four are.
If you want to be a winner too, you should take advantage of our region’s weekly founder forum where a young business gives a 6 minute presentation about their startup that is followed by feedback and questions from the audience. 1 MC Sac meets every Wednesday morning from 8:34-10AM via Zoom. Learn more about 1 Million Cups (and apply to present!) here.
