Who loves gummies? Who loves healthy living? Who loves inspiring entrepreneurial stories from members of our Seattle community?
Foundation is launching a new series in partnership with 1 Million Cups called Ales and Tales: Local Stories of Inspiration. Starting in September, once a month, we will gather together to connect and learn from a local, inspiring story that reminds us that we can make our dreams a reality.
In our first Ales & Tales, we are going to meet Dr. Connie Wan, the founder of the Seattle Gummy Company. A woman so passionate about gummies and the potential for how they can deliver life saving drugs tinto your system that she founded a company to deliver just that.
On top this passion, her entire life story is fascinating and we are grateful and excited to have her be a part of this event to share that story with us. Join us at Optimism Brewery at 5:30PM on Monday, September 17th for a night of inspiration, celebration, and connection.
1 Million Cups is based on the notion that entrepreneurs discover solutions and engage with their communities over a million cups of coffee. The Seattle 1MC Community launched just a few months ago and is a free program designed to educate, engage and inspire entrepreneurs at weekly Wednesday morning pitch meetups. Through the power of volunteers, 1 Million Cups has grown to more than 180 communities.
