Another new week for 1 Million Cups – Irvine ( #1MCIrvine ) and two new companies pitching their company. We continue to see the number of attendees increase, and we remind everyone to please register at the group’s Meetup page. One of the special features of 1 Million Cups is that a special mug is presented to anyone who has attended ten times. We had a record 11 mugs presented this week! This week we slowed down just a bit to learn more about fine tea and fine art.
Charles and Company
This week we met Lawrence Charles, a tea enthusiast and premium tea purveyor, and founder of Charles and Company. Lawrence is inspired by the inherent healthfulness of tea and believes no other beverage has the ability to positively affect the body, soothe the mind, and create opportunities for relaxed, enjoyable social interactions.
National Art Gallery
We were also introduced to Tammy Catalano and her online art marketplace, the National Art Gallery. Tammy provides digital art portfolios to artists giving collectors a diverse selection art at their fingertips.
Look for future Entrepreneur Spotlight features of Charles and Company and National Art Gallery in coming weeks.
