The founder of Cash Cow Farmer, Scott Anderson, was the keynote speaker at 1 Million Cups in Brookings, SD. Scott talked about how he founded Cash Cow at a entrepreneurial event called Startup Weekend in Minneapoilis, MN about a year earlier. The farm accounting program was developed because Scott noticed that farmers were having a hard time making money with the recent correction in commodity prices. The Cash Cow Farmer Program, according to Scott, helps farmers identify their strengths and weaknesses in their operation to help them make better management and grain marketing decisions.
Scott was able to tie his financial background from working on Wall Street to his farming experience to create the Cash Cow program that would make sense for a farmer.
One Million Cups is an entrepreneurial event developed by the Kauffman foundation. 1MC is designed to help educate, engage and connect entrepreneurs to their local community.
The events start out by going over upcoming local events to make sure people know about them. After the announcements, the keynote speaker is introduced and is usually a local rising entrepreneur. The entrepreneur talks about how they started their business and where they are at in growing their business. After about 6 minutes the community asks a series of questions usually starting with asking how the community can help the entrepreneur with their business.
The audience usually consists of local business people, entrepreneurs, students, city council and everything in between.
