Albuquerque, New Mexico
Paul Szauter, PhD, Chief Scientific Officer of EquiSeq, will present via Zoom at One Million Cups in Albuquerque on Wednesday, January 20, at 9:00 am MST. The format is a six-minute presentation followed by twenty minutes of questions and discussion. The presentation is open to the public via Zoom.
Based on the notion that entrepreneurs discover solutions and engage with their communities over a million cups of coffee, the Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation developed One Million Cups in 2012 â€” a free program designed to educate, engage and inspire entrepreneurs around the country. Through the power of volunteers, One Million Cups has grown to more than 160 communities.
As a program of the Kauffman Foundation, One Million Cups works with entrepreneurs, empowering them with the tools and resources to break down barriers that stand in the way of starting and growing their businesses.
Dr. Szauter founded EquiSeq in 2015 with no background in business. He was introduced to Albuquerque’s entrepreneurial community when he won a pitch competition in September 2014. He completed the ABQid Accelerator program in 2015. After a couple of years of regularly attending One Million Cups Albuquerque, he became one of the group’s volunteer organizers, recruiting and coaching other entrepreneurs.
Dr. Szauter has previously presented EquiSeq at One Million Cups in Albuquerque NM, Lubbock TX, Amarillo TX, El Paso TX, Ft. Collins CO, and Greenville SC. Each of these presentations has offered new opportunities for learning and collaboration.
The Kaufman Foundation’s guidelines for organizers of One Million Cupsask them to limit presentations to companies that have been in operation five years or less. This will therefore be the last time that EquiSeq will be presented at One Million Cups.
