UWGB student entrepreneurs were recently featured at 1 Million Cups events in Green Bay and Appleton. In October, Maria Arunkumar (Business Administration) was chosen to represent the 1 Million Cups Green Bay community (www.1MillionCups.com/GreenBay) at annual Northeast Wisconsin startup conference kinnektorCon as part of the 1 Million Cups Appleton community gathering on October 24 (pictured far right in all 5 pictures). Arunkumar presented her Build-a-Wedding app idea.
At the 1 Million Cups Green Bay gathering in November, Renee DeGrand (Business Administration) was chosen to talk about her business, a focused ecommerce platform for hobbyists called Fervid Life, which is in the idea/concept phase. She is pictured on the right at 1 Million Cups Green Bay in a “Fireside Chat” format. The 1 Million Cups Green Bay community meets the second Wednesday of every month at 9am in the Rise & Grind coworking space, next to Cura Coffeehouse on the 3rd floor of the Brown County Central Library in downtown Green Bay.
