The weekly Cup of Joe gatherings are now available to watch live via Facebook, allowing entrepreneurs across the region to participate and connect with other business owners. Each week, different entrepreneurs present about their business and how they are adapting to this pandemic. 

Cup of Joe was started as a way to support the local entrepreneur community in the region. Each week, two entrepreneurs share their story and gain helpful feedback and support from the audience. The St. Joseph gathering was inspired by the 1 Million Cups entrepreneur program, started by the Kauffman Foundation in Kansas City. Similar gatherings occur every Wednesday morning in cities across the country and across the world.

The addition of the livestream feature enables entrepreneurs and communities from a wider geographic area to experience Cup of Joe, watch the presentations, ask questions and provide feedback live. Presentations are also archived, so the public can watch and learn from past presenters.

To watch the livestream or access archived presentations, make sure to like the Cup of Joe Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/cupofjoestjoe/. Cup of Joe meets every Wednesday morning at 9 a.m.

“Cup of Joe has become such a support network for entrepreneurs. We look forward to seeing each other every week,” said Lura Landis of Lura Landis Photography and one of the group’s grassroots organizers. “And now that we can watch the presenters live from the Facebook feed, we can participate from anywhere!”
