Brew Your Business To Launch Jan. 10, 2024

Williston - One Million Cups (1MC) Williston has held its final meeting. The organization is disbanding at the end of 2023 in favor of a new independent group for entrepreneurs called Brew Your Business, (BYB) Williston.

Williston has been a 1MC community for the past seven years. The first meeting was held in March 2017.

“We felt that the 1 Million Cups program had run its course and we were ready to move onto a new format that will better service our entrepreneurs,” said Cyrena Weeks, Small Business Development Center, and a BYB organizer.

The Williston 1MC was started by Williston Economic Development with support from the SBDC and Williston Area Chamber of Commerce. The same organizations are partnering to bring BYB to Williston.

“We are excited to announce that Brew Your Business will offer a different format that will provide more engagement between business owners, lenders, CPAs, marketing firms, and anyone else who provides resources and services for small businesses,” said Weeks.

The meetings will be held the second Wednesday of each month in the Teton Lounge, Williston State College campus. The first meeting will be held on Wednesday, Jan. 10. The presenters will be the co-owners of The Range Sports Bar and Simulators in Williston. Jeremy Stahowiak and Eli Black will offer a wide range of information about starting and expanding a business. The co-owners are experienced entrepreneurs and have a wealth of information to share.

Participants are invited to begin arriving at 8:30 a.m. for a complimentary cup of coffee. Specialty drinks will also be available for purchase at the WSC bookstore. The program will start at 9 a.m. with a 20-minute interview with the owners of The Range. Following the interview, attendees are encouraged to participate in a 20-minute round table discussion and a 20-minute speed networking session.

“We believe this new format will further expose the resources and services that are available for entrepreneurs in our community,” said Weeks.
