Cup of Joe

Cup of Joe is a weekly gathering to engage, educate and accelerate the St. Joseph, Missouri, area’s business and entrepreneur community.


COVID-19 Update: The regular weekly Cup of Joe gathering is now virtual on the Cup of Joe Facebook page at 9 a.m. each Wednesday.

Cup of Joe is a simple way to engage entrepreneurs in communities around the world. Each week, the Cup of Joe program, inspired by 1 Million Cups in Kansas City, offers local St. Joseph, Missouri, businesses an opportunity to share their experience with a diverse audience of mentors, advisors and fellow business owners.

Two presenters are showcased each week. Presenters prepare a 10-minute educational presentation and engage in 15 minutes of feedback and questioning afterwards. Entrepreneurs gain insightful feedback while connecting with a supportive community that cares about their progress.

The audience also learns a great deal from the presentations. Whether this is through passively listening or deeply engaging with the entrepreneurs, there is much to learn every week from these dynamic and diverse communities.

Cup of Joe meets at the St. Joseph Public Library-East Hills Mall location, 502 N. Woodbine Road, St. Joseph, Missouri. Supporters gather around 8:30 a.m. for coffee and conversation. Use the door on the east side of the café. The program begins at 9 a.m.

This is a casual gathering for entrepreneurs, by entrepreneurs. Please join us to share ideas – over a cup of joe.  It is led by entrepreneurs.
