WHAT IS OPEN COFFEE?
Open Coffee is a Juan Great Leap event which happens every month.
All entrepreneurial-minded people - whether you are a seasoned entrepreneur, a new one, or someone who wishes to take the leap soon - are all very much welcome to go. The format of OPEN COFFEE is unique and encourages maximum learning, helping, and collaboration. Dozens of people have also found co-founders, investors, clients, and collaborators, all through OPEN COFFEE.
For this edition of Open Coffee, we HIGHLY ENCOURAGE people to pitch even more ideas on how to help Yolanda victims out. We will also collect a slightly higher minimum fee of P200 (we usually collect P100 for the venue and simple snacks), where half of the proceeds will go to Yolanda victims. You are free to give more than P200 if you wish to do so :)
1) First 10 minutes is alloted for all startup-related news
2) Then, the Open Pitches begin
ANYONE in the group will have an opportunity to pitch to the audience. A pitch can be anything - a business idea, a question, a call to partner, an opening for a position, an opportunity to collaborate.
In this case though, each person will have a STRICT 2 minute limit.
After the 2 minutes, the audience can then provide their 2 cents.
This takes place for around an hour.
3) Informal mixer
Afterwards, an informal mixer happens where people can network and collaborate freely.
