1 Million Cups – Irvine ( #1MCIrvine ) once again hosted two companies to share their story in front of an ever growing crowd. In a problem as serious as California’s drought and subsequent water shortage, event host Ryan Foland responded to a severe coffee shortage and pleaded with the group to pre-register for future events on the 1MCIrvine’s Meetup page promising to increase the flow as required for future events.
This week we were introduced to Mila Diamond of Diamond Mind International, our emcee for the day. Mila rallied the group as we were introduced to two new startups from the SoCal area.
In a reversal to the usual presentation we were first asked to spin our seat around 180 degrees to face the rear of the room. When the curtains were pulled open we saw Cailen Sullivan and Andrew Jasco from ZenBox, standing next to their new BitCoin ATM, currently installed at the Eureka Building.
