We’re super excited to be graduating our 2nd Equity in Entrepreneurship (Equinent) cohort from our Spring ’21 class! Participants persevered through sessions on business finance, creating a business model canvas, sales funnels and MVP discussions, and emerge ready for the next stage of their small business journey.

1 Million Cups Tampa presentations are the capstone project for the class.  The Hillsborough County Entrepreneur Collaborative Center facilitates scheduling participants for a dedicated period of time, so they can complete their program together, and this time around, participants are all speaking in June.

Here’s the line up:
